It snowed.

I wax romantic about my snow-memories, but really, I've wished for a million things in my life and who the *hell* thought anyone would listen when I said I missed snow? It's like magic. The world changed while I slept, and I thought that only happened in fairy tales.

Half an inch of it coated the ground when I woke up this morning and looked outside. Just there, like it had always been there, like I was supposed to just find this the most perfectly normal morning in creation when it was nothing even close.

Those of you who live in snowy climates can't really appreciate the sheer *bizarrity* of seeing snow on the ground. This pure, glinting white with bits of dark brown earth sneaking up in places to contrast. Eternal stretch of country everywhere and it's all white, glittering, *dazzling* as far as the eye can see, and that's a lot of far to see.

It melted away by noon, and I'm not so much sad that it's gone, but surprised that I was allowed to see it at all, a few hours of siver and white and improbable things, after over a decade of waiting.

I think I'm happy.

I think I'm happy.

*smiles* Yeah, I think you are.

*hugs you*

I almost got teary-eyed, all wow-ing myself out. Just. Snow

*blissful sigh*

You're happy, and I'm happy for you. That makes us doubly happy?

While you were admiring the *bizarity* of the snow, my neighbors and I were having a snowball fight. Then, the other kids in the neighborhood joined. Even for 25, you're never too old for a good fight!


I don't think I've ever been in a snowball fight. Sandball fight, dirt clod fight, and popsicle fight, but not snowball.

Hmm. I shall add it to my to-do list. *G*

I think you're happy too.

Amazing -- there's one thing Dallas has over Austin. I'm absolutely shocked. We generally get snow once or twice a winter...
