I thought I had read that it had also snowed in Texas and folks were freaking out about it.

It's a good thing your son likes driving in it Stacy, since it looks like he is going to have plenty to drive in!

We had a couple feet of snow about six or seven years ago, and a few inches one or two other years, but most years it doesn't snow here. We got one night of snow last year, which Cubbie absolutely loved! We have had a few cold nights this year (in the 20s and 30s), but it is ridiculously warm this week. We don't need jackets, and the lows have been in the 50s. We have had to have the fan on a lot lately. James wants snow for Christmas, and I would love at least a few days of it. If we do get any, it will most likely be in January, since it is colder then.

It looks like Spokane got dumped on today ... and they're equipped to handle it. We got 4" here in Eugene and it shut the city down for three days. I'm glad your son is getting his white Christmas =)

Those are great photos Stacy!!! I would love to see snow like that here in Texas, but like you said, nine times out of ten... it's ice!

Those pictures look like where I live, in Sault Ste. Marie, MI. And about driving in the snow, when you know it well enough, the somewhat slippery surface allows you to do things that can't do on dry pavement, like swing the back end around in a tight spot. I love driving in the snow.

True that Middie!! If I may use the parlance of our times, snow, and winter in general, sucks!!

We had a couple of hours of freezing rain here tonite, and now the snow is falling on top of it!! They've already cancelled everything for tomorrow!! Grandson Sammy is elated-Christmas vacation started a day early!

Susan, Houston is in the southern part of Texas and it's pretty rare to get snow down there. Now, it has twice in the last year We have had sleet in the last week, that's it Luckily, not bad and driving wasn't horrible.
