Feb. TX Shoes:
We just got a small dusting of about an inch, if that, here, overnight. It is the first time it has snowed here since '07 and that was just flurries. This lasted until the sun came up. The last big snow storm as back in 1985 when Johnny Carson was still on the Tonight Show. He had just went through a divorce and one of his guests asked him if he would ever get married again. He said "It will be a snowy day in San Antonio if I ever get married again"! The next night when he came on he said he wanted to talk about something that he said last night. Then he proceeded to repeat what I said above. Then he said, "Well, San Antonio got 14.5 inches of snow last night"! And we did! And later on, he got married again! I think officially, at the airport, it was 13.5, and in outlying areas, it was 15" or more. It shut us down for a few days. Here are a few pix of our BIG snowstorm last night here. It rarely snows in South Central Texas and for some people who have never seen snow before, it is quite the treat. Me, I have shoveled to much of it in my younger years. Most of our universities, and schools have closed down for this morning or the day because the roads were iced over. It rained before it snowed. We have just come out of below freezing conditions even during the daytime hours! This is cold to us Texans in South Texas!
