We don't have snow in Texas every year, and when we have them they are usually not much at all . . but what gets difficult is the cold and gloomy days, sometimes for a whole month or two we don't have a ray of sunshine, but a gray sky with thunderstorms and rain every single day . . luckily this year was not that bad, although the winder was cold, overcasts didn't last at any time more than 3 weeks at a time.
