Just hours after San Antonio basked in a record high of 85 degrees Tuesday, snow and sleet began falling from the sky north of San Antonio.
and the more technical official sounding jargon...
Moisture in the form of an upper-level low-pressure system came through behind a cold front that dropped temperatures from the upper 80s Tuesday afternoon to the low 30s Wednesday morning.
So yeah around these here parts we can go from a/c to heat within a few hours. It amazes me that plants survive this kind of abuse. We didn't get any snow of real proportions, only a dusting really. When the hubby got up at 2:45 am he got ready and right before he left he got me up to show me that it had started, exactly as predicted by the weather people. Nothing like the So Cal forecasters who can't predict 70 and sunny every day to save their lives. And no, I did not let him wake the kid to watch snow fall, she'd have stayed up all night.
By morning the snow had stopped and most had melted. Only those who had cars parked outside had snow still on them. And the roofs of houses still had dustings. Really if I were to live in a place that snowed this is all I'd need. No adverse affects for traffic issues. The hubby and I are a rarity in our neighborhood, we keep both our cars in the garage. For whatever reason all new homes in San Antonio have 2 car garages that weren't really made to fit 2 cars into. We can do it but not all doors can open and it's a damn good thing we're skinny because the doors that can open can only open like 8" and you have to squeeze in. The garages can comfortably fit 1 car in them and a bunch of junk but most people just fill them to the brim with junk and park both cars in the driveway. For whatever reason the dh and I are really into parking our cars int he garage, it's a luxury we've never had before and we intend to use it and not gather any more junk than we absolutely have to.
I do have pics, they are just at home on the camera, I was running late this morning! As per usual, the kid's teacher probably doesn't like me anymore. She's been on the brink of late all week and today was just straight up LATE.
