Merry Christmas!; Pope Celebrates Different Kind Of Season; Snow Flurries Dust Houston, Parts Of East & South Texas; Images Of Snow Where The West Begins; Snow Emergency Tickets Issued Prematurely; Alignment Not Seen For 100 Years

Merry Christmas: Mike Wendland, aka. PC Mike, posts a brief history of Christmas. I wish everyone out there a Merry Christmas! Father John Gremmels, a priest at my church, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, says what he wants to say, and at Friday evening’s Mass, he said he hoped Mel Gibson’s “Passion Of The Christ” DVD was in everyone’s stockings because it didn’t sugarcoat what happened to that baby in the manger. Some actually applauded at the end of his homily when he closed with: “You should live your life in a way so that your priest doesn’t have to lie at your funeral.”

Different Kind Of Season: Pope Celebrates Season Of Hope

Miracle Snow: Snow Flurries Dust Houston, Parts Of East & South Texas: Forecasters said as much as an inch could fall in some locations before it’s over. Snow has already fallen in the Rio Grande Valley, making it the first time since 1895. Resources: Weather/Webcam Images For Houston | Corpus Christi | Brownsville

Here at WXnation’s headquarters in far north Fort Worth, 2 inches of snow fell Wednesday, and I snapped the pictures below — the two on the left were taken Wednesday and the other two taken Thursday.
