Bet you’ll never see a satellite picture like this again in your lifetime. Almost all that white on the ground across Texas is snow on the ground. You can see the dark open water of reservoirs in NE Texas. Literally hundreds and hundreds of snowfall and temperature records were set this past week from Canada down into Mexico, with some cities having their biggest snowstorm ever (nearly a foot of snow in Del Rio, Texas) and some setting or coming close to their all-time record low temperatures. There was snow on the ground over about half of Louisiana and the snow extended down past the Rio Grande into Mexico. Waco set a record for 205 consecutive hours at or below freezing – the old record was 168 hours. How cold each state got this past week.
