Snow in Rare Places
Hello and happy Thursday everyone, hope all is well on this last Thursday of October 2011. Take a look at the weather across the nation today and note the blue showing up across the Panhandle of Texas… Indeed that is snow falling across northern Texas! In fact, Amarillo Texas had 2.5″ of snow today, which is a new record. The old record in Amarillo, TX was 2.4″ set in 1911.
This was one of the earliest snowfalls on record for northern Texas. The image below is from Wyland Baptist University just south of Amarillo, TX
