Weather chasers.

Some of my siblings and I are obsessed with weather.
It's not unusual for us to have text threads that comment
on weather patterns, predictions, and opinions.
And I am not just talking about weather but 
cozy, cold, dreary, crazy- mostly snowy weather.
The day we finally got snow here on the ranch (almost 2 weeks ago) 
my phone buzzed alerting me of a text.
It was from my brother Andrew.
He texted to me in his sarcastic Mr. weatherman voice:
"I show you are currently under a winter weather advisory.
Do you feel a storms-a coming?
I see rain is changing to snow quickly.
Looks like snow coming in around 8pm for a couple hours...
keep me posted."

A few of my brothers follow the ranch weather and 
text me frequently to see how weather is developing.
I told Andrew I would send him a report once the white stuff started falling.
We stayed in touch most of the night reporting back and forth
 on weather updates, temps, wind direction and color of the sky.
  It's all important stuff.

Finally around 8:00 the white stuff started falling 
(and hasn't come since, I might add).
I sent Andrew photos (from our Vivint camera), and videos.

Hopefully this week we have more weather texts to discuss!
