Snow in Louisiana - I've Seen It All Now


What a surprise. Even when we listened to news reports of snow in parishes to the west of us as we ate breakfast yesterday morning, we still never imagined what was in store for us!
I went out the back door to drive the kids to school and the light rain was beginning to turn to heavy snow before my very eyes. "Uhh...kids...you might want to come see this."
After the initial shock of having to make some last minute schedule changes, what a glorious, magical day it was. One of our neighbors were playing Christmas music on their outdoor speakers just across the bayou from us. It seemed that the whole neighborhood was standing still and just taking in the breath-taking scenery with that beautiful music in the background of a holiday greeting card scene.
Even our two Maltese dogs relished in their new-found frolic, once they got accustomed to feeling the powder on their paws. Boston went bounding out the door as usual, and when his front paws his the snow, his back paws went straight up in the air as he did a handstand to avoid putting all fours down in the mysterious, cold white stuff. The teenagers had no trouble adapting. It didn't take long to pull the ski gear out of the attic and pilfer through to find "what fits."
Dentally speaking, we lost some power about halfway through the day and ended up rescheduling the afternoon patients. A perfect excuse for pouring a hot mug of coffee and walking through the snow-covered forest along the bayou in the back yard.
