49 out of 50

Forty-nine out of fifty states had traces of snow to many feet of snow on the ground Friday, February 12, 2010. Here in Bedford, Texas - nine inches, a record since 1889, the dawn of recordkeeping. Only Hawaii was the place to be with palm trees swaying and surfers hanging ten.

Hard to believe it will be 103 degrees in five months or so.

Power outage for twenty hours. The house is so still. No hums, no nothing. It's tricky to write while wearing gloves.

Pioneer tactics.
Quite a memorable snow event.

  1. Good thoughts and photo's. Love the milk jug. My Flagstaff family don't understand the lack of snow shovels, snow boots, snow plows in our neck of the woods.

    We were without power for 40 hours. Not bad reducing life to the basics. I did long for a hot shower. Still, all in all, we were grateful we weren't 27 days under a grocery store in Haiti. It's all perspective.
