… as just now, at shortly after 1 p.m., temperatures are 92 already [the high humidity taken into account it feels like 106] and it’ll certainly be more later in the afternoon – usually our daily high is between 4 and 5 p.m. – we’re happy to remember that – even if only very rarely – it can be/look quite different here:
That picture was taken on Christmas day 2004. Yes, really: a white Christmas. It had started snowing on Christmas eve, in the afternoon, very lightly only, and everybody ran to the windows to watch in amazement as nobody believed that would be very much: snow is the absolute exception down here in southern Texas. But then the snow continued to fall and the next morn ing the landscape around the house looked like shown in the picture. It didn’t last, of course: only for one day, but it was really wonderful. Btw, nobody around here could remember having had a white Christmas ever in their lifetime, and the last time they had snow down here was in 1985!
More pictures of that white Christmas in my “Bilderbuch Blog“.
And another event was to be admired in 2004: ice rain. That left quite wondersome sculptures and views in the garden.
Again, more pictures in my “Bilderbuch Blog“.
