Better than nothing. South Texas barely sees any rain anymore...some areas have gotten less than 0.50 inch so far this year. We need that to change or else it's going to be another brutal summer there.

Oh good, I see NOAA saw my winter cancel. If it wants to spite me, I’m all for it.

Let it snow NTX!

I’m an aspiring meteorologist who usually only speaks in layman’s terms. Any forecast or discussion I say is purely of my own opinion and should only be taken as such.

So true, and OMG, I'm glad I wasn't in the process of drinking something while reading this, my laptop would have had spontaneous precipitation! :D

That much snow wouldn’t cause too many issues up in North Texas, but in east or southeast Texas, that’s a different story.

Careful what you wish for. The novelty wears off after awhile. I lived through the '93 Superstorm - was in Birmingham, Alabama at the time. The event itself was very exciting for a weather geek like me. Talk about an adrenaline rush seeing and hearing Thundersnow at night and 16" of snow getting dumped on you. The first day after was pretty amazing - playing in the snow and just taking-in the whole experience. I took a lot of great pictures and jumped in the snow like a little kid.

But...longleaf pine trees can't handle that much snow. A lot of them snapped. The recovery was similar to what we experienced after Ike. No power, phone or cable for two weeks. No power meant the electric furnace wouldn't run. The house got frigid. We slept in front of the fireplace in sleeping bags for 3-4 nights until it warmed-up again. Stores were closed for days, and what supplies they had quickly ran out. Thousands of people were trapped on the freeways and had to be rescued with Humvees and the National Guard.

Was it cool? Was it fun and exciting? Yeah, for the days leading up to it, during, and for about a day after the storm hit. After that, the snow melted and it was two weeks of hell.

I would be willing to accept my fate for a repeat of that.

We haven’t had much here in Wharton County that’s for sure. A lil drizzle here and there that’s about it. Sick of it. Really wondering when we’re finally going to get something moderate to heavy instead of this mist or drizzle.

I lived in Alabama then too and barely remember it but yeah all I really remember was the snow drifts being taller than me(I was 4 years old :lol: )

Never seen anything remotely close since but then again it was called the Storm of the Century for a reason :lol:

So last night Fox 4 showed an animated polar vortex sitting tightly right over the north pole. Pretty cool seeing that, he was explaining why we have not seen any arctic air of late. That being said how is the see ice looking this year at this point? Any chance something disrupts the vortex and sends some shots before spring gets here? Time is running out.

I can't imagine temperatures that cold now, or how many busted pipes there would be! Thanks for sharing this!
