We had an unusual occurrence Friday. We got about an inch of snow and it was the first time since 2004.
We woke up to snow. Here is a shot of the backyard.
A corner with the giant Birds of Paradise.
A third view of the backyard. This photo looks blurry in the distance but that is snowfall.
Lucy makes some tentative steps. She has not seen snow before.
Lucy tries the “Let me go back,” maneuver.
Baily is an old veteran of snow since she went to college in Waco where it snows more. The dogs are blurry because they are running around a full speed.
A shot of the upper palm tree leaves covered with snow.
The palm trees by the hurricane-damaged pool. This is facing East so you can see the snow coming from the North and piling up on the tree trunks.
The cart over to the beach.
A shot from the top of the cart over. The Gulf is to the left.
A photo on the beach. The snow falling makes the horizon look foggy.
One more shot of the beach and Gulf. You can see large snowflakes falling.
I met Tiny on the cart over and he had lost his head over the snow. The cap shows how fast the snow is falling
These are my footprints after about five minutes. You can see the falling snow is filling them in.
Our Hibiscus decided to close up and wait for better weather. I hope you enjoyed the snow. It may be another ten years before we see it again.
