The season's first snow fall…sort of

As first snowfalls go, Tuesday's brief flurry of white stuff wasn't that much. This greeted me when I walked out the door of our house at 12:45 p.m. An hour later the sun was out and the snow gone. A skiff fell overnight but not much. Further south, more problems arose. A pileup of cars and tractor trailers on slick I-81 in near Marion.

  1. Doug, you make a brief observation into a lifetime memory.

    Most of us don’t take the time to savoring the moment, much less capturing it.

    In the last 20 years, I don’t recall snowfall ever being a part of the season here in the area of the Texas Hill Country in which I reside. I’ve heard old timers talk about seeing it snow here, but I’m still waiting.

  2. What are those trees in the foreground? Heritage Birch? Paperless birch? Just curious. They remind me of Heritage because of the three trunks but I remember them a little more salmon colored.
