2014 has been an awfully cold and snowy winter for most of the country. And even BlissWood hasn’t been totally immune to this year’s weird winter weather! Our normally sunny ranch in Cat Spring, Texas joined in on the meteorological madness just last week.
We were pretty sure that we had seen the last of Old Man Winter, but he showed his face one more time. (Or at least we hope it was the last time!) On a day that started out at a beautiful 74 degrees in the morning, the winds changed quickly as the temperature dropped an astonishing 40 degrees by late afternoon! But it wasn’t just the cold that hit us hard. By the next morning everything on the ranch was coated in ice!
The blooms of our flowering trees were all covered in sparkling ice. And while it’s not the type of weather we usually hope for, it certainly made for a beautiful winter wonderland. We’re glad we got some good pictures of the storm because the next day it was all gone! Maybe it was just a reminder to beware Mother Nature.
But it looks like spring is in the air at BlissWood now! And we’re glad, because that means more sunny days for enjoying the great outdoors here on the ranch. With all the winter weather behind us, it’s time to get out and enjoy all the simple pleasures that BlissWood has to offer. For us, spring means nature walks, hiking, biking, fishing, and picnics. We’re even beginning to see bluebonnets popping up all over the pastures. Some of them are already starting to peek out!
If you’re ready to spring into Spring, plan a trip to BlissWood! You can check availability online or just give us a call at 713-301-3235. We’ll be happy to help you start the season off right!
