Can you believe it??? After 109 years, it finally snowed in Brownsville....about 1.5 inches as reported yesterday in The Brownsville Herald. And it snowed on Christmas Eve (well it began at 10pm on Dec. 24 and went into the early Christmas morning.) So when I woke up at 6am, everything outside was covered in a blanket of snow. After 109 years, what are the odds that is would snow for Christmas? I could almost say that is was nothing short of a miracle. Especially after one of the hottest summers Brownsville has seen in recorded history. La Canicula pretty much went into early October. So it's kind of sad that the snow is all melted and gone. I added the little snowflakes to this blog in memory of the miraculous event. hehe.
My little nephew will be coming home today or tommorrow. We are making a total rehaul of two bedrooms in my house to make room for him and my sister, so of course everything is in choas. My strategy is transferring choas out of one room and into another....lol. I am also having to find a home for my cat Leonardo "da Vinci". No one wants to take him in for a few weeks. I love my cat. I adopted him from the Town Lake Animal Shelter in Austin, Texas two years ago and he has been my best companion. But boy does he shed hair and it's not good for the baby's lungs. So as you can assume, I am in a bit of a jiffy...but I am not worrying too much about it...I am sure something will pull through.
So yeah, I will try to have those snow pictures up either Wednesday or Thursday. Our snowman Señor Snow, has been reduced into a pile snow that is still braving the South Texas weather outside. I know that the blog Tortilla Sandwich has some good pictures from Victoria, Texas and they had a good foot of snow up there. Sorry for the delay folks...I really need a digital camera so I can get pictures out faster, so maybe I will give myself that present later on. I hope it will snow again. My sister was not able to witness this event because she was in the hospital recovering from having her baby. So for her sake, I hope it does snow again. She was atleast able to see the last distinguishable remains of Señor Snow yesterday. I will be sure to add his picture too.
