When you think of Texas, images of a snowy winter landscape don't usually come to mind. Unless of course we're discussing the majestic snowfall plummeting down on the southeastern region of the state.
That's right, it snowed in south Texas on Thursday night and into Friday morning, and because people there aren't really accustomed to frozen water pouring from the sky, they appropriately (and joyously) freaked out. According to CNN, the snow started falling on Thursday, with smatterings landing in Austin and San Antonio. But the unforeseen blanketing has grown and continued in some parts of the state as of Friday afternoon.
Even in Corpus Christi, which has its historical averages hovering around 67 degrees this time of year, the snow has been intense, with meteorologist Mike Seidel explaining that this is just the third time in the last 70 years that the city has had measurable snowfall.
Someone there must be communicating with winter spirits, because it looks like the tundra is vacationing in Texas.
