The power has thankfully stayed on for us and customers throughout the state without power have gone down about 50% from 4.5 million to 2.7 million. Still a whole lot of people without but doing a lot better than yesterday.

 

Ended up getting another 3"+ of snow last night with totals from both storms at over 8".

I only got another 1.2" of snow from overnight, so my total is 4.6" over these two events. I am considering myself very fortunate, as my power hasn't gone out at any point over these past few days. I'm not sure what's sparing me, as friends living only a mile away have been having their power going on and off.

Heavy sleet and freezing rain now coming down in Longview. The back side of the precip is not moving much at all. Temperature is 24F. Not good...

Barely anything since early morning in Hideaway. Back edge has ease ever so slowly east. The Central Texas batch may get us. Not sure on precip type with that but I assume sleet.

On the DFW radar, new precip seems to be developing SW of Tyler. You may get in on some of that action. Doesn't seem too heavy yet, but may become so as it heads NE. Looks to keep me in some precip for a while this afternoon, yet. Probably sleet.

Been snowing moderately for at least 30 minutes. I am hoping it stays as snow.

Up to close to 2" snow in past 1.5 hours, plus 0.5" sleet this morning, plus 8.5" snow Sunday night. That makes 11" total with another inch or so to come from this current band.

Afaik, the grid managers are prioritizing locations with hospitals and similar sensitive facilities, at the expense of residential and industrial sectors.

Not sure how easily that is actually implemented though...

I've read it a couple of times on twitter... is it true that more pipes might burst when the weather actually warms up? I've already had at least three friends with pipe bursts in their homes, and I'm afraid that my luck will run out at some point. I hope all of y'all are still able to be warm and safe. Obviously, problems are pretty widespread throughout the state (power, water, etc.), but I've heard a lot of bad things going on with Austin's infrastructure. They've had multiple major ice events in addition to their snow.

Well, it's likely there are burst pipes that are still frozen and the leak won't be known until the ice thaws.

There's still brutal cold in the area and there will continue to be more frozen pipes through the next few days.

I wonder how many continuous hours that some part of Texas has had a cold-weather-related watch, warning, or advisory.

5 inches for DFW. When averaged with the marginal amounts since 15-16 we actually end up at roughly our expected yearly average (about an inch per year)

The snow records at DFW only go back to 1940. The average annual snowfall at DFW from 1940 to today is exactly 2.44 inches per year. If we had a complete snow record back to 1899 it would likely be a bit higher.
