It's Snowing in Houston!

Snow surprises Houston-area residents | Chronicle | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle: "White stuff fell across much of the Houston area Wednesday evening, as temperatures hovered just above freezing, tying a record for the city's earliest ever snowfall.

Since 1895, according to data collected by Houston's Weather Research Center, snow has fallen this early just once — on Dec. 10, 1944 — during the last 113 years.

Typically, snow falls about every four years in the Houston area. The city's last snowfall was a memorable one, coming on Christmas Eve 2004."

The novelty factor must add to the excitement. Wait until you have snow, freezing rain, then snow again. Now that's fun for drivers and walkers alike!
