I was challenged to write a story about a time I experienced a white Christmas. Being from Texas, I haven't had many. Here's my best one ever.
The Christmas Snow
Texas isn’t a place for snow.
Not that you can plan for. We do get the white stuff, and sometimes a lot, but it’s here and gone, rarely when we want it or find it convenient.
Except that one Christmas Day …
I’m from the Metroplex (Fort Worth-Dallas), and we were headed to the Gulf Coast for Christmas week. Galveston, to be specific. As December rolled on, the forecast suggested an ever-increasing chance of Christmas ice storms for Fort Worth.
