We arrived in Houston expecting snow drifts over our heads. After all, the city was crippled by this major storm, schools were closed early and flights were suspended. Instead, we found cars, grass and trees with a sprinkling of the white stuff. My sister said some parts of town had an inch of snow.
I do understand why this minuscule amount crippled a major city. They aren't used to snow. I heard that it has only snowed 34 times since weather has been recorded and it never snowed this early in the year.
This year I've been rained on in two trips (Switzerland and Canada) , marooned on a ship do to a hurricane and now snowed on in a city that never snows. I'll be in Jamaica in a few weeks. I'm dreading what the weather will bring me there.
