Snow night!

As everybody who lives in Houston knows, last night we were treated to a rare snowfall. Kirby was rather impressed:
It snowed for several hours, and we probably got about an inch of snow once it was over. The entire front yard got a dusting, including the Elektra Tree:
Needless to say, Kirby and his father spent a lot of time outside, enjoying the wintry spectacle:
This is the first snowfall here since the amazing White Christmas snowfall of 2004. Apparently, this evening's flurries tie a record for earliest recorded snowfall in Houston.

Whatever accumulated in yards, on cars and on rooftops melted away pretty quickly after the snowfall ended late last evening, and warmer weather is expected to return today. But that's okay. It was fun and beautiful while it lasted.
