Real Snow in Bastrop!

The weather prognosticators were right for a change. We got snow today! Real snow. It started a little after noon. It was mostly rain and sleet at first, but it finally almost covered the ground. Very interesting afternoon. It is still 35 degrees out there. The UT Baseball game scheduled for this afternoon was postponed until tomorrow. We will not get to go ... so sad. We are going to the dentist in Mexico again.

You northerners will appreciate that some offices closed early this afternoon until 10:00 a.m. tomorrow. They expect some ice on the roads I guess. I hope there isn't any, we leave early in the morning.

Here is a video and a couple of photos as documentation of our snow!

And a couple of photos:

Wow at this rate you may have to find some place to "winter". lol

Joanna said...

JeanneG's a funny gal! I was marveling at the very quiet video and then you spoke up. Yay.

Enjoyed the video and photos.

Brrrr...so glad the game was postponed. It was cold for the Alumni game...but at least it was dry. Today's weather would've been beyond miserable.

Jo Castillo said...

Ah, Jeanne, you made me laugh!

Joanna, I forget I can talk on the video. Heh, heh. Hard to keep me quiet.

Yes, very miserable for baseball and I didn't post about the good weather for the weekend. :(

Jo Castillo said...

Thanks, Valerie. Guess you have had enough .. and cold to go with it.`

Joan said...

Jo Castillo said...

Bag Blog, I bet. Hope all is well up north. :)

Joan, If we had a storm like you get everything would come to a halt here! There was no ice next morning so all went well. :)

Jo: Oh so cute with your little snowfall. We have surpassed the record of 28" for February. I think we are up to 34" for the month so the snow is here.

Jo Castillo said...

fishing guy, I told you northerners that our snow was a laughing matter! Your photos of the snow are great. I like it far from me!!
