A White Texas Easter

Yesterday it was sunny and grand. Today it's snowing.

In April.

In TEXAS!

Our uncle George took this photo of snow falling on Texas bluebonnets. It's a once in a lifetime kind of image, I think, and I thank him and Aunt Sharon for sharing it with us.



Whether you're religious or not, the Easter holiday coming up on this suddenly frosty Sunday is a good time of year to think about renewals, rebirths, and second chances. And a late snow like this is also a good reminder to take nothing for granted -- even the early hopes and promise of spring, sometimes, can fall victim to an unforeseen frost. Enjoy every moment you're lucky enough to see and be ready to take whatever comes.

Nice photo, Jeff.

By the way, my verification word seems to be a Lovecraftian horror: eqktqrqp.

My sanity decreased just typing that.
