Snow In South Texas
« on: December 07, 2017, 07:40:26 PM »
Ok. I know you guys are getting pelted up north but now weíre getting it in South Texas.  Crazy weather.  I donít believe weíve had any accumulation since 1985 in the San Antonio area.  But itís nice to see this once in a while.  And itís going to be 70 degrees on Monday lol.

That's great! We usually got one dusting a year in Austin and it was gone within a few hours. The last snow I got to see in Texas happened in the month of March (?!) just a few weeks before we left to move to TN years ago.

I lived in San Antonio back in 85 and I remember that 13-15"

I am in Houston now and we are getting some too. I was just telling some coworkers about the SA Blizzard of 85!

Wow, that's unusual.  I'm up in Indiana and we haven't even had that much snow, yet.
It did get wicked cold last night.

In Southern Wisconsin, we haven't gotten any snow yet either.

It snowed in Atlanta around noon yesterday, but it didn't quite get cold enough down here in Eatonton, we did get some slushy rain/melty sleet.

Thatís nuts.  Our snow is all melted now because itís up to 63 today.  The system that hit here was a survivor because it went through several states and I believe itís still producing up east now.  Luckily the roads didnít freeze up the night it snowed.  I believe there were around 1000 car accidents back in 1985 when it dumped 12-13Ē in San Antonio.  Itís white knuckle driving around here when itís dry.  Throw in precipitation and youíre in for a wild time.

Around 10 this morning we had about 5 minutes of snow all the way down here in Eatonton.  It was probably 45 degrees outside, to warm for it to stick to anything, but still neat to see nonetheless!

I'm on the North side of Atlanta and we got around 8" of the white stuff. (Meteorologists said we'd get 1-3") I've lived down here for 16 years and haven't seen this big a snow down here. Made me feel like I was in Northeast Ohio again. Kids have been having a blast.

All these songs about "White Christmas" stuff, and cold cold Decembers, always sound incredibly weird.

Christmas is the time of year when it's entirely too damn hot, and if you have any sense you'll be wandering around in jandals, shorts, and a tshirt.

June-July is the cold, wet, miserable time of year when you'll be staying inside as much as you can.

Right? Though I'm afraid my oldest (red coat, almost 4) has 100% tied the snow to Christmas in his mind. And it might take a considerable amount of explaining for him to understand that just because the snow melts (probably tomorrow--let's be real, it is Georgia after all) Christmas isn't over. Friday as the snow was falling he kept saying, "It's Christmas Eve!" And he may have thought today was Christmas, even though he didn't get any presents. ;D haha
