Snow! (Neve!)

by on Feb.18, 2010, under General

I’m a little late with this but it’s blog-worthy for sure.  Dallas, TX rarely gets snow and when we do it’s hardly ever much accumulation.  Most of the time they predict an inch, maybe two and it turns into half that and will dust the ground and is gone either that day or the next.  This year has been a bit different.

Back in November we got about 3 inches of the white stuff that fell early on a Wednesday morning.  Oddly enough we got snow before Canada did!  True to Dallas form however, it was gone by lunchtime as the temperatures rose into the 40’s.  We got a couple more dustings until Christmas Eve when we got another 3 or 4 inches of snow, covering the roads, yards, etc.  Most of that melted in a couple of days, but it was still lingering some by New Years Day.

Last week was the big one though.  The East Coast was getting hammered with snow and forecasters predicted that we might catch the tail end of that storm and get 1-2 inches on Thursday.  On Wednesday they upgraded that to 3-4 inches.  We woke up on Thursday morning and the snow was falling quite heavily.  By noon we had their 1-2 inches and their 3-4 inches and it was still coming, hard and heavy.  The snow continued on until late Friday morning, dumping a record 12.5 inches of snow on the Metroplex!  The previous record for single day snowfall was 12 inches.  This was more snow than Dallas had received in one day, during the month of February and the total snowfall for this winter is more than has ever fallen in Dallas.

Check out pictures of Evie, Elizabeth, Catherine and Layla (our dog) playing in the snow!
