Record Snowfall - Most Ever in Fort Worth

Yesterday we got 9 inches of snow, the most ever in 111 years of recorded weather history in Fort Worth. It started snowing Wednesday night and snowed all day Thursday. We woke up this morning to a completely snow-covered world.

The trees spread out enormously under the weight of all that snow. It was very sticky and created fancy shapes on the collection of empty pots that lives on the back porch. Later in the morning I noticed the trees in our front yard were simply FILLED with robins. (middle left) There must have been 30 robins sitting in the two trees. I've never seen more than 3 in one place before. Also, something came to visit later (lower middle), perhaps a cat?

Here's a link to our snowy slideshow.

I wish it would snow here, just once. Everything looks so pretty covered in white.

Love your pictures! You have just about as much snow as we do in Indiana (LOL) The weather throughout the US has been very strange this year. But it is pretty, as long as you don't have to get out and drive in it :)

Do you have a snow blower? Don't know what that is do ya?
Ok, do you have a snow shovel, oh that's a new word too is it?
OMG...I am laughing as I see all this snow in the south, and here we are in the north, practically without snow.
Enjoy it you southern belles, it'll be melted tomorrow!

We have had snow like that here in Somerset (England) recently, the heaviest for 40 years. Everywhere was transformed with such beauty, don't like it when it goes slushy and icy though. Enjoy it's beauty. We have been seeing on our news of the heavy snow in Washington. We had Fieldfare birds that came to our garden and it was like the locusts had been and stripped the tree clean of its berries - there must have been nearly 40 of them squabbling for the best fruit.
