We haven't had Snow here in North Texas yet but "just up the road" (in Texas terms that means anything up to 400 miles) in Amarillo they had over 2" on Thursday, we just got nasty, drizzly rain, reminded me of home, and not in a good way. This morning is super chilly, only upper 30's so Winter feels like it's here, but as any good Texan will tell you "you don't like the weather?, just wait 15 minutes and it will change :)"
With that the weekend forecast is better, warming to the low 70's, just right for Halloween! LOL
Have a wonderful weekend and please come along and play with us at A Gem of a Challenge

Lovely card, very pretty colours too. Ages ago, Easter 1995 to be precise, we went camping in Northern Texas, up in the Panhandle in the Guadalope Mountains..... and we got 18" of snow!! But it was gone in two days which was just as well as I was practically wearing everything I'd brought in the tent at night just to keep warm!
