It’s Snowing in Austin!

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes

Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes

Silver white winters that melt into springs

These are a few of my favorite things.. From the Sound of Music

People who know me know that I am a big fan of snow! I can sit for hours and watch snow, the gentle flakes that keep falling on the ground and how it hardens into ice and how it all melts away with the first bright rays of the sun. Its all so fascinating!

Last year, I desperately wanted to visit a place that snows in the US and for various reasons, we couldn’t. The best Christmas is undoubtedly the white Christmas! It is beauty personified with all the Christmas decorations and white snow all around.

It doesnt normally snow in Austin, but when I read the weather reports that it was going to snow today, I kept an eye out for any signs of snow. And there it was, in the wee hours this morning it started snowing and by time we woke up this morning, we had considerable amount of snow all around! It is not much compared to the snow storms the states up north received this year, but I am just content to see snow here in Austin.

Reminds me of the idiom – If Mohammed does not go to the mountain, the mountain goes to Mohammed. 😀

Here are some pictures from this morning
