    Oh, me too.

    We get some freezing rain about every 3-4 Year’s.

    I think it’s been since “09” that we actually had any snow stick to the ground.

    Not a big deal really but these folks from S. Texans trip on it

    Hell, it will probably be in the 80s in a day or two.

  • Bet that really messed up the whole commute down there, hell when it rains people panic, must have canceled school and any non critical jobs for the week.

    1993 we had 16 feet of accumulation, that's snow just piling up and not melting when I lived in Twisp, and that's just on the other side of the Mountains and a bit up north. We were driving around like nothing happened and still working, only like -20 degrees a lot of the time that winter.

    Made 200 bucks a roof to remove snow from them that year, 200 bucks for 5 minutes work, used to walk up and flop down butt first and just slide off with the snow to the ground, cleared one whole side and just do it again, sometimes we got the double wammy and both sides would go.

  • Just saw the official report.

    Was Dec. 9, 2009 the last time Houston had any measurable snow.
