More Wintry Weather

January was officially the coldest month on record in more than two decades (okay, I can't remember exactly what kind of record was set, so this is the best you get). And it was also one of the wettest. Then again, considering we're in a drought of more than two years, it's not hard to set that record. Though it was the wettest January of late, we're still more than 20" in the hole for rainfall.

But I digress. Today marks the second day this week that we've had snow. Yep, you read that right. Two days of snowfall. No, not snow pellets. No, not sleet (well, okay, it's sleeted too). No, not freezing rain (though we've gotten that also). Honest-to-goodness snow. Naturally, the ground temperatures are too warm for anything to stick. Mostly because we haven't had any snowfall of significant measure. And the temperatures have only hovered around freezing.

I know, how boring. I'm talking about the weather. But if you're from the area, you understand why it's such a big deal. I mean, it consumed all of the 4 o'clock news this afternoon. And continues to take a significant amount of airtime in the regular nightly broadcasts. What can I say...we North Texans are fascinated.
