Its just one day. Happens here like once every 10 years on average but with Global Warming and the change in Climate, things are different now.

More like the fact that it is an El Nino year. Very common weather pattern for El Nino years. Hot, dry summer to cool, wet winter. Very typical.

If the snow does accumulate as the forecasters are predicting at this time (2-4 inches) it will be the most that has accumulated in a REALLY long time in some areas. In Sealy, where my parents live, the last accumulating snowfall was 1985. Many areas north and west of 59 and south of a austin-college station-jasper line didn't see any snow last year or during the 2004 event. This is a BIG deal if it does come true...you could go a lifetime without seeing an event like this in some areas because snowfall (especially accumulating snow) tends to be very spotty when it does occur in this part of the World.

One other thing...many people don't realize Houston has an impressive all-time snowfall record. 20 inches...yes.....TWENTY inches...fell in downtown Houston in February 1895. Imagine that!

I'm no expert - but when we do get snow, it something similar to the lake effect snows in the Great Lakes area - kind of like a Gulf effect snow since it only snows near the coast.
