Found this postcard today.
On the back it reads...

"Last winter, San Antonians were treated to a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Over 13 inches of snow fell on the Alamo City in a single day."




No year is shown.

It was in January of 1985.

Thanks for sharing the video.

Several things I noticed:
Aluminum roofing is dangerous & $$$$ if it snows a lot.
Some locations no longer exist. (Moonbeam Inn on San Pedro St)
How young/slim the reporters look on the news.
The haircuts.
And ....
San Antonio is not prepared if it should snow again this much!

El Nino rain definitely petered out in my area in December! Afterward, just a fairly dry winter, milder temps! Actually, the long-term "guesses" by experts were for wetter than normal, warmer than normal. At least they got the second part right!
