Houston's White Christmas!

The Loyal Opposition and I saw a couple of stray flakes this afternoon while doing some last minute Christmas shopping. A couple of hours latter, when we walked out the front door for church, we saw snow -- honest-to-God snow -- which even blew across the road as we drove the couple of miles for the Christmas Eve service.

It seems to be area-wide!

While folks from New England would scoff, Houstonians were delighted this morning with light snow flurries falling from gray, cold skies on Christmas Eve. The National Weather Service issued a winter storm travel warning for much of Southeast Texas through 7 a.m. Saturday.

It has been 15 years since anything like this has happened in this part of Texas -- five years before this kid was born.

What's more, the local forecasters are predicting up to three inches, not the little amount the Chronicle is suggesting.
