A Snowy Day in Dallas
While Dallas, Texas is known for hot summers and mild winters, we do get a good snowy day every few years. In 2011, just before Super Bowl XLV was scheduled to be hosted at Cowboys Stadium, the whole DFW Metroplex went into a deep freeze. We even got a couple of inches of snow. Then, since this is Dallas, the temperature spiked to 50 the very next day. Even at nine in the morning, the snow was melting at an amazing rate. I knew it wouldn’t last long, so I threw on a light jacket and captured these images by the ponds near my house.
Around the Apartment Complex
Having grown up in Michigan, I can say that one good snowy day a year is enough. An occasional snow can be refreshing, although ice is never welcome. Before this big snowfall, we had a couple of days of iciness that shut the whole city down for a week. After my dad’s car slid off of an icy levee taking me to school one day, I have never had a good relationship with ice. Unfortunately, in warm climates like this, ice is much more common than snow. Here’s hoping that the next winter will have one good snowy day, with no ice in sight.
