    We had a record high of 81F this afternoon and by 9:30pm it was 36F and the cars were covered in sleet (I know the picture isn't great, just a quick snapshot)

    That's why I love Texas!

    Update, we have now had some snow! So in the space of 7 hours we went from 81 to snow sticking on the cars.

    For us to get ANY snow in December is rare (Austin has never had a white Christmas), especially when 7 hours earlier the temp was 50 degrees higher.

    Of course if we had a foot of snow, the city would completely shut down and I wouldn't have to go to work. :mrgreen:

    We're only 20 miles from Galveston. This is very rare for us. Last snow was Christmas Eve 2004.

    Wow! You did get some snow! I saw on TV that New Orleans got some snow too! I believe it was the first snow in four years or something.
