When you think of snow and Texas, the first thing that probably comes to mind is a bunch of cowpokes scrambling around on frozen rodes trying to get home from work at 2 in the afternoon. That’s problematic, but it isn’t THE problem.
The problem is: Snow is wet.
Many Texans (myself among them) just don’t have the right clothes for spending time in the snow. Staying warm isn’t a problem, it’s keeping your pants (and everything else) from getting soaking wet. The ski bums among us have the proper gear, but that doesn’t help those of us who spend our winter months in warmer climes.
As I write this, my oldest son is peeling himself out of his second pair of icy cold jeans. Hooray for snow!
