Focus on Texas: Snow Day

Drift over to our slideshow to see our readers’ prized pics. No two are alike!

There’s a patch of old snow in a corner / That I should have guessed
Was a blow-away paper the rain / Had brought to rest.
It is speckled with grime as if / Small print overspread it,
The news of a day I’ve forgotten— / If I ever read it.

—Robert Frost
