When you think of Texas you probably think of things like The Alamo, oil, and cowboys. What almost never comes to mind is snow.
That's why it's so shocking to learn that parts of southern Texas actually had some significant snowfall this week. Well, significant for Texas, at least.
"SNOW SNOW SNOW SNOW. ITS SNOWING. #SanAntonio" tweeted one guy alongside a blizzard selfie. Others are saying, "NEVER EVER THOUGHT I WOULD SEE THIS IN SAN ANTONIO!!!! SNOW!!!! #SanAntonio" and "NO WAY...In San Antonio?! #Texas #Weather #Snow."
One guy tweeted "In #Houston, you're more likely to see a 500-year flood event than snow. I've lived here for 2.5 years, and endured 3 of those floods. But this is my first snow here. #HoustonSnow" about the current state of things in Texas.
The snowstorm, if we can call it that, hit both Houston and San Antonio. Austin was left untouched, despite its promise to keep itself weird.
Some Texans knew this would be a special moment and leaned into that.
Like this guy who took it as an opportunity to propose to his girlfriend: "SNOW-M-G!!! When the snow started to fall in Brenham, Travis knew it was the perfect time to pop the question to Nicole since she LOVES snow. She said, "YES!" #HoustonSnow #Snowmance"
But most Texans knew this would be the perfect time for jokes.
Parts of southern Texas are completely shut down, due to the region not have the facilities to deal with any snowfall. So as fun as this is, and it is, let's hope things get back to normal soon. Just not too soon.
