Snowmageddon Hits Texas

Ok, so it's not exactly Snowmageddon by many people's standards, but for this region, the snow that fell today is not something you see every year..... or every decade for that matter.

It started this morning before dawn as rain and snow mixed together here in Granbury. It didn't build up too much because it kept melting, however, for areas a little further north of us, the snow built up very rapidly. In Weatherford, about 20 minutes north of us, they have gotten close to 8 inches of snow and it is still coming down as I write this. Here in Granbury, where the snow stuck, I can see maybe about 2 inches so far.

Here is a short video I took of the snow falling here. This is something that you maybe see once per year here in this area of Texas, but so far this year, we have seen at least 3 mini-snowstorms.

After the sun goes down tonight, that is when the problems will start. It is going to be cold tonight, well below freezing, so all the roads will ice-up and we don't have a lot of equipment that can remove ice and snow from roads very well. I have to be in work for 5am tomorrow, it may be a "fun" drive, guess I better leave early.
