Well we had a 20 percent chance for rain and sleet tonight in Buda TX.
The forecast was wrong.
It snowed, HARD and fast. The temp dropped to 34 and the north wind blew those dendrites past the streetlights and I was out on a very happy jebwalk! I was blasting old school ELO songs in the midst of very large very wet snowflakes, savoring a trip down memory lane! It looked so much like Northern Virginia! But I was standing in South Austin, rubbing my eyes, pinching myself, kept on thinking I MUST be dreaming! It was 80 degrees yesterday with a 65 dewpoint! Now, it was snowing hard and even sticking to elevated surfaces! We ended up with about a quarter inch of snow on the grass and on many elevated surfaces like car tops, bushes, trash can lids. Crazy Texas weather can be amazing! I think Midland TX well to my west got 7 inches!
This was a very happy trip down memory lane but it will probably be my last for a couple more years! Local snow climo is about three quarters of an inch in a winter. So tonights quarter inch snowfall equates to a major winter storm of 4-6 inches in N VA. I enjoyed it. There's snow out there right now on the wood patio! Might have to sneak out there at 3am local time and roll in it like old times in Dale City after a 2 foot HECS! LOL!
