    I'm in Fort Worth. No snow here at all. You must be down south, I heard it might snow in Houston.

    LOL...I can remember the first time it snowed when I lived in Houston. I thought the town would come to a stand-still, because folks did not know what to do or how the heck to drive in it. :p

    Of course being of that age at the time, we could not wait to get out in the snow and drive...we were way ahead of the curve as far as DRIFTING goes :D Heck a bunch of us could have probably ended up driving rally races in Norway. That is until the first fender bender happend :( But as luck would have it, Mother Nature took care of everyone in the form of rebounding on the slippery surface - no injuries, other than some minor sheet metal.

    Enjoy the snow Jusselin, take the little ones out in it, and if you don't have any, borrow the family's or the neighbors. Go have some fun.

    Well, here are a couple of shots of the Texas-Mexico border last night about 12:30 am. I took them on my way home from the bridge. Wild night in Texas.

    It's a great state. I'm an Arizona native, but love living in Texas.

    In 2004, my family and I took a Christmas Caribbean cruise. Coming back in to the port in Galveston on Christmas day, we came in to a 100-year snowstorm in south Texas. It was amazing. Five or six inches of snow in the Houston/Galveston area.

    I'm a native Oregonian, but Texas is closer to my heart. Conservative, friendly, and with a pro hockey team.

    Funny...I moved up here to Oregon...from Texas. :p

    I miss it, but don't miss the humidity. I lived in Austin, then moved down to Schertz, right out of San Anton, then finally up to Houston before the road trip up to the great northwest. That was 30 years ago. And as much as I've missed it, sadly...I haven't been back down yet. I'm sure the old stomping grounds have been plowed under and repaved a few times through the years.

    But I have to say, despite the occasional rain up here ;), I do love the GREEN of the northwest, and almost getting all 4 seasons. But I also still do the "hook'em horns" when I see U of T playing - LOL...my kid thought I was paying tribute to Ozzie Osborne the first time he saw me doing the Texas horns.

    My only child graduates from UT tomorrow. He is so proud to be a Longhorn. Hopefully, he'll still feel that way after the Big 12 championship game tomorrow!

    Not all of Texas looks like that movie, which was shot down in Marfa (as was "There Will Be Blood" and "Giant"), but pretty close!
