It is a gray fox... red fox have white tipped tails. If you look closely you can see the sides of this one are gray, another indication it is a gray fox

We have a family in the neighborhood. I see them almost every day. Kinda my favorite wildlife experience for the 'hood full of deer. Never bother our old/young cats. They actually seem to kinda hang out together. Not sure what kind of livestock they might threaten besides chickens.

up here in Denton County, a grey fox used to cut through our property in winter season around twilight...don't remember any red or russet, but maybe it was the light!

I wonder if he’s watching people coming out of the pooper, and wondering if they washed their hands....be spreading germs around his Forrest

We have so many chicken owners now I doubt we have any foxes or bobcats & hawks left. The neighbor's seem to think eradicating the wild life will help the chickens.

I wish a neighbor would quit shooting them! Makes me angry 😡 I

We called this Fox a Red Fox , we also had Gray Fox's in our area they both are so pretty

ah shes sitting looking for snow like heyyy were did it go lol jk

Natasha look at this pretty thing

Having your camera ready and timing

What a treat to see a beautiful animal like this!

Love little foxy...in the mountains...you would see quite a few

Fernando Isaac Flores we must go to take w picture of it!!

We had coyotes running about 3pm that's not funny.

What did it say?!

So cute! What a treat for her!

Hermoso

Beautiful.

That is a fat fox

Taking in some rays.

Beautiful

Beautiful!!!

Here kitty, Kitty, Kitty- come home with Me

So pretty.

some people up north might think that's a puny little snowman down here we think it's freakin amazing we can even make one LOL

Everything is bigger except snowman in Texas

Frosty the Snowman might need to ask Santa for a GPS or maybe just an old fashion map. Frosty seems to have gotten lost.

That's beautiful! It snowed here for first time this year yesterday and everyone panicked and went out and bought out all the milk and bread! HA! Hey folks... it's December in New York! Yippee☹️

Meow

Ahhh... The elusive nearly extinct Texas snowy beach comber

Love it. I’m sure there were a few people surfing while it was snowing. ⛄️ 🏄

its Photoshop, it doesn't actually snow in texas, thats just a myth started by the Illuminati XD

My favorite SNOW picture of all.....

Lake Ontario don't have snow yet it looks funny to from New York

Cool picture with the Gulf in the background !! ⛄️🌊

Love it!!! Don't get a chance to build a snowman on Texas beaches very often.

It snowed there in 2003 a few days before my daughter's outdoor wedding!!!

Ella Bryan this is the real reason you don't want to go to Hawaii 😂⛄️🏄🏻‍♀️

Even Snowmen love the beach~~~ lol

Did you see the picture of the snowman "fishing"?

This is truly awesome. Never thought I would see this.

Steve-o lies... y'all did get snow down there.

OLAF!!! Looks like he's singing, 'LET IT GO, LET IT GO!'

This is absolutely un-real!!! Has this ever happened before?

You can use tar balls for eyes!

Looks like the snowman that was on our neighbors truck this morning.

My niece Jean had a pic of snow in Louisiana this morning..none in Maine (yet)

WE LIVE IN THE PANHANDLE AND NO SNOW HERE YET,

All I can think of is Copenhagen! Someone add a mermaid tail!! ❤️

Governor Abbott declared that hurricane Harvey had created more than a 180 billion 0 dollars worth in damages I believe that we should have a state program that should mimic fema out of state level This program should be able to provide texans Who live in an area that has been ordered To Evacuate. When Our Legislators Know That Hurricanes Are A Common Problem . Our Governor Told The Federal Government That There was more than 180 Billion Dollars In Damages. Many Texans Had to Evacuate. Some Stayed . Also The Rainy Day Fund Should Have Been Used at Least 2 Billion Dollars . It's about setting An Example . Most Texans Pay Property Taxes & Sales Taxes . But If We Know That Hurricanes Are A Common Problem. IF WE KNOW That the Reason why So Many Texans Had to Be Rescued because they could not Afford to Evacuate The Department of Public Safety reported that, 122,331 people were rescued or evacuated after Harvey, along with 5,234 pets / We Definitely Need A State Wide Program To Help Texans in Such A Terrifying & Stressful Time . As That Represenative You Saw The Damgage that HURRICANES are Capable of . It be nice if you wrote a legislation stressing its importance & You Can Yeild Time to Floor to HURRICANE HARVEY VICTIMS . I'm just saying when The Governor Declares that One HURRICANE Created 180 Billion Dollars in Damages & The TEXAS Department of public safety Declared that 122,331 Citizens Were Rescued State Wide / Because if Were in Your Position I'd be Writing Leglislation & it Can Even be a Bi-partisan Leglislation / Even If it Doesn't pass the Senate it's About recognizing A problem & Fixing it / And The Last HURRICANE Was a $180 Billion dollar Problem & More than 13 Million Texans were Displaced

Turn off your cruise control in snowy and icy conditions and watch out for black ice on overpass even though the road might be good the overpass May be slick

Prayers for my fellow TXDOT family as they work during the storm. Stay safe and take care of one another. God Bless!

its nice to be retired on days like this just turn over and pull up the covers

Ty for info !

Some brave souls are swimming today at snowy Balmorhea State Park in west Texas.

Water temperature of the spring-fed pool stays 72 to 76 degrees year-round.December 7, 2017 - It has been snowing steadily at Balmorhea State Park since early this morning. Here are a few shots of our first snow at Balmorhea this season. So far, we have only had two brave souls in the water today!

We also had some swimmers at the 3rd largest spring-fed pool in Texas - located at Fort Clark Springs in Brackettville! It was surrounded by snow today too!

Not sure the word "brave" should be applied to anyone swimming in an area that has snow on the ground

I used swim year round at Barton Springs in Austin. Even when it's cold and wintry, the water feels great once you get in.

I took my scuba certification test there. On our 2nd day the weather was mild when we got in. By the time we got out it was starting to snow. We got changed in record time!

Remember when I told your friend this about the river and he said it wasn't true so I told you he was a downer and you told him I said that Abby Burns

I lost my mind on that broken white line before I even reached Balmorhea...

The Polar Bear Club is what it's called up North in Minnesota.

If you read the pool stays 72-76 year round. The water probably feels good.

The swimming is easy, it's the getting out that's hard!

I can't stand it in the summer, too cold, but on a day like today it would probably be nice.

72 wouldn't be warm enough for me!!!

Salina and Shannon, here's west Texas.

So Margie Anthes you'll still be able to swim here on our trip to the observatory!!!

72 is cold unless it's summer in Texas.

I would probably get in now, Kevin!

Man, Gerzan J Chau, maybe we should've planned our trip for this park instead.

Omg I'd love to do this!

Scott McIlhany Erin McIlhany - here you go. Your winter vacation spot.

It's cold in the summer!

I saw one post where 2 boys were swimming in a pool surrounded by snow.It looked like fun.

I would just to say I did - perfect temps!

Yes it's snowing here I'm about 45 mins from balmorhea now

And then you can come over to see me.

Mitch Watt, this is where you want to be right now, right?

Siobhan... it's snowing in Texas 😍

So pretty....a real Winter in Texas. I miss snow in December in Christmas season....it can leave afterwards. ⛄🎄

Wow...didn't even know it snowed down there. Though, this may complicate plans to visit Davis Mountains SP soon...

Indian Lodge is still closed for repairs right? I was there last year about this same time and can't wait to go back!

My Mom and Dad stayed their when I was doing the dude ranch across the street back in the late 50's.

I loved going to Indian Lodge with my Sunday School group, The GNU'S from FUMC in San Angelo. I miss thoes good times.

This is right next to Davis mountains where we stayed. It's snowing right now! Miguel Lopez Cameron Michael

Fort Davis - my favorite place in Texas. Maybe my favorite place anywhere.

Paul Sanchez that's the hotel my dad stayed at°!!! Let's go this weekend!

It’ll be 85* Christmas Day! Enjoy it while we can! ❤️☃️❄️🎄

Carrie hoping you have a winter wonderland of your own this year!

Cheyenne Ciotti I’m surprised it’s snowing in Fort Davis, it would be cool to see that!

Very picturesque and Seasonal, thanks for posting, stay warm.

I thought Indian Lodge is closed until May for repairs...?

snowing at silver cloud and timber mountain ranches too

Most gorgeous part of Texas! Ft Davis, Alpine, Marfa, Big Bend!

Oh thank you for posting this! I can hear the Silent Night...magical place of my <3.

I love this part of Texas!

One of my favorite places! I was in some serious snow storms there!

That area is absolutely beautiful!

So happy it's you'll and not me. Snow is pretty but ...

I wish I was in the Davis Mountains in the snow.

I was there a little over a year ago. I would love to visit in winter!

Strange seeing snow around that pool!❄⛄🐧🌬🏝

Scott Cromeens This is where we're going for spring break!

Indian Lodge is a great place near Big Ben. Loved staying there.
