A Snowball's Chance Where???

Houston was mesmerized by the unexpected snow flurries last night, starting as a slushy drizzle around 5:00pm, and turning into fluffy flakes a few hours later. The snow around me inside the city fell at least an inch, but places on the east side of Houston had up to 4 inches! It had mostly melted by this morning at my place, but there were several pictures from the areas east of town with snow-covered rooftops and white lawns. It was so pretty to see with all the Christmas decorations up, and it made all the Christmas music seem much more appropriate. Nothing like an early snowfall to get people in the spirit! Apparantly, snow this early in the season hasn't fallen in this area since 1944 - as reported on Channel 11 news this morning!
