Ten minutes from downtown sits our neighborhood on the east side of Fort Worth. It’s one of the areas of the DFW Metroplex that still has a somewhat rural feel. On the weekends, you often see people riding their horses down the medians on John T. White Road. When I first moved to this area back in the mid-1990’s, it was still a mail rural route.

There’s an old cemetery across from a woodframe church near some new housing subdivisions. I’ve only seen evidence of one funeral there in the years I’ve lived here.

Today, we had our third snow of the season — freakishly winter-like for an area that should be sunny and in the 60’s this time of year. Driving past old Isham Cemetery, the gray sky and the light dusting of the snow over the open field of the old cemetery made it feel like winter.
