We survived 7 days with no water, idk how many hours with no power....and hopefully will survive the grocery food shortage Texas is now having! :boggled: Snow, you are beautiful but I think we have had enough for a lifetime....Here are some of my favorite shots from our Texas winter wonderland!

1) little birdy in the snow

2) melted snow crystals on my lens created these really cool flares. I love how it makes the image seem "cold".

3) exploring

I like the light in this set. #5 is my favorite as one of those life's moments that you seem to capture so well. Were these with your Canon or Fuji? I think you mentioned you were getting a Fuji.

Nice set! I really like #4, the lighting is great. I moved to Colorado from DFW several years ago so still have many friends and family in Texas. Crazy times there, I'd say 70% of the people I know there lost power, water, or both for an extended period of time. Hopefully the powers that be wake up and start some infrastructure upgrades moving forward.

I like the light flare in some of these and the road lead in, in the last.

Thanks so much! I hope all your loved ones are safe and that they have water and power! I sure do hope this was a wake up call, but let's be honest, they prob won't do anything about it :/ :/

Real nice set.
I have brothers in Austin and they said they got their power back but no water, everything is frozen so they're using bottled water and the back yard for #1's.

Thank you!! @Susan Will , I hope you all thaw out ASAP too!

Oh gosh, yes we did that only we had a camp bucket/toilet LOL. I hope your brothers have water now!! We are so lucky to have well water, though it did break, we were able to get it fixed quickly once it thawed out.
