Central Texas - Fort Hood area. Biggest snowflakes I've ever seen and I've been to Summit County. The yard is almost all white now. Thanks to the Gawds, it'll be gone tomorrow and March is only a week away.

Two days ago was 76 degrees.

We got about 3 inches of snow here in Abilene today. This is about the 5th or 6th time we've had siginificant snow so far this winter. The weather folks said today that we haven't had this much annual snowfall since the early 70's!

Unbelievable near Austin. Like WillysB said..huge snowflakes. Then again EVERYTHING's bigger in Texas..even the snowflakes

Nice dusting all over the yard and roof but streets stayed wet. Gotta love it..77 degrees and then snow and tomorrow 50's. Summer-winter-spring all in a few days.

Boy I love the craziness of Texas weather..

That's awesome. Here in Midessa we didn't get the big wet sloppy snowflakes, instead we got a fine powder like snow.

Had WONDERFUL snow here today! Big fluffy flakes, about 3 inches out here on the ranch, threw snowballs at each other (that the dog tried to chase and fetch, except when he'd get to where they landed, they were gone! Much perplexity), played in the snow, took lots of photos for posterity.

Snowbelt? Awwww. c'om, that isn't snow!

Well, I admit, yesterday, scraping snow off my car, I did feel like I was back in Michigan for awhile. But that would have been a good day in MI!

My poor kitty freaked out---he just couldn't understand what all that cold, wet stuff was coming down on his head!

For a real snowbelt... visit Cleveland, Erie, Northwestern PA/Southwestern NY, and Buffalo!

Yes, we in Cowtown did have a foot of snow, breaking a record for 24 hours!

But to call Texas the "new snowbelt of America" must make people in the Buffalo, NY area laugh. They get several feet of snow every year. The northern and mountainous ares of the USA get much more than we do!
