I haven't lived in Texas my whole life, so I do know that what we had last week wasn't technically a blizzard. However, I also know that as far back as records go, there has never been 12" of snow recorded in one day in the DFW area. Until last week, that is! What is truly amazing is that this is not the first snowfall of the year. Considering we usually don't get any snowfall, or if we do it falls and melts within hours, this is an event worth posting about!
I really never thought I'd have a picture of my house looking quite like this!
When looking closely, it became clear that this tree was hit by lightening at some point which weakened it. I don't think it would have fallen if not for this big charred spot giving it a weak point to split.
