It Was A White Christmas in East Texas After All
The forecasters predicted it would snow on Christmas Day for parts of East Texas thanks to a passing low pressure system, however, I think it snowed farther south than they initially thought it would giving a lot of East Texans a white Christmas after all. I have never experienced a white Christmas and this one was special for a lot of us!
The rain and storms gradually changed over to snow and at first it was just small flakes that really didn’t amount to anything but a dusting and then all of a sudden the huge wet flakes fell and covered trees, cars and rooftops with a white blanket. Where I live in south Tyler, there really wasn’t enough to build a snowman but that didn’t stop the kids (and some of us bigger kids) from having a quick snowball fight! Areas north of I-20 and along the I-30 corridor received around 4″ of the white stuff making for a very memorable white Christmas and my first ever here in East Texas!
