There was a record amount of snow on Christmas Eve in Fort Worth this year and I ended up being here to see it.

Kim and I had to quickly change our holiday plans due to an unexpected visit to the hospital for my grandmother. She’s doing fine now, but we left Tuesday morning to come spend time with here while she’s been here being monitored.

Being up in Fort Worth, however, we were able to witness the snow: three inches of it! The snow piled on in classic white blanket fashion.

I’d escaped getting snowed into the hospital right before the blizzard piled it in over the afternoon. The next day, Christmas, it melted away just as quickly as it’d come in. Some patches of snow survived in the shade, but it was just puddles and the occasional snow patch on the roads back to the hospital on Christmas.
