As a lifelong East Texan, snow days don't happen very often. The ones I have seen have varied each time. From a light dusting to when I was a little kid in the 80's where I believe we got seven or eight inches. I may be wrong about that amount but I remember it was a lot and loved being able to play in it.

Even in 2011, I think, when it snowed on Christmas Day. The first white Christmas I had ever had.

We got a decent amount across East Texas this time. Many schools have closed so your little ones will have the chance to enjoy today's snow.

I took some time to go around the station to get some snow pictures for you. Take a look and share your pictures through the free station app. We'd love to see your snowmen or snowball fights.
