It has been a VERY long time since we have experienced snow in San Antonio. The last time there was even a trace of snow on the ground was 1985. That was 32 years ago.
Snow in San Antonio is a very special event. There are 30 year old adults here who have lived their whole lives without ever having seen what snow looks like.
It wasn’t much. The official measurement was 1.9 inches. It wasn’t even enough to cover the grass under the trees. I enjoyed it though. My favorite thing is to go out and sit in the hot tub as the snow gently falls. I had to go to Colorado 10 years ago to do that.
The local news has been broadcasting continuously since 6:00 with hardly any commercial breaks showing the radar, talking about it and showing pictures that citizens have sent it. I kind of like it. It’s almost like a city-wide party experience. I could hear children outside playing in the snow up and down the street. It is likely to be their first and last ever snow.
It’s 10:00 pm now and the snow has stopped and is being melted by light rain. There’s pretty much zero chance of there being any left in the morning. This event could only have been made better by continuing through the night so I could have a Snow Day. The temperature is just barely above freezing and it is unlikely for there to even have ice on the bridges tomorrow. Bummer. I might call in sick anyway. I was already planning to do that before the snow started falling.
