Can You Believe Snowmageddon Was One Year Ago Today?
It's hard to imagine the difference between today and one year ago today, February 15, 2021, but the difference is obvious. Today's forecast is Mostly sunny with a high near 70, last year when I got to work, it was 1 degree.
We Got Down To What?
I took the picture below as soon as I got to work, simply because I remembered that my dash has the outside temp on it. Lisa likes to call it "Stupid-Cold," but I think we got down to three notches below that last February.
Nobody was shopping last February 15 across the street from the radio stations on Arkansas Blvd.
Today, looking much better for everyone concerned.
This next pic I took after being at work for about an hour, the snow was still coming down very heavy and it looked like my truck had been parked there most of the night.
Today, not bad at all.
On the way home from work I videoed a few things with my phone, this one made me chuckle.
Trying to get back home after that first day of work of Snowmageddon 2021 was a challenge.
We were very lucky, no pipes broken at my house, we did lose a good portion of our shrubs around and some other plants and trees, but overall we can't complain. It was by far the most snow I've ever experienced in my life as a Texas boy.
Here are a few more pics from Day 1 of "Snowmageddon 2021" and a few days later as the melt began.
