A Rare Event - Snow

It's snowing. I know for most of you that's nothing, but here it's a pretty rare event.

We got 6" of snow on Monday night . No one was injured , no one panicked , no emergency was declared , no schools were closed, and no one abandoned their vehicle on the freeway.
It's winter and in winter it snows , how else can you have a white Christmas ?
Enjoy the snow while you can since it may soon be gone.!!

Happy Holidays

For sure. It'll be gone tomorrow, with highs supposedly reaching near 60. It's snowed here maybe 3 times in the last 20 years.

Still coming down. I don't expect it to be more than 2" total, but any snow here is special.

Two inches is five centimeters. Much more.

You're making that up, right? . Hope I am not seeing that when I get back down to Texas in a few days.

Nope, it's real. Storm is over now, just over 2 inches.
No worries Cathy, it'll be gone by 10 am tomorrow.

We also had flurries in northwestern Travis County. Probably 1/4" in all... a bit more in Austin. It was fun to see; it's especially unusual in December.

For what it's worth, my family members in Alpine, TX got over 6"
