We had a dusting of snow last night. My city went bat%^&* crazy.
Snow in Texas...that flys in the face of the whole Global Warming idea
Um... no.

52 F and partly cloudy.
I went to Arizona a few years back in early May for a week of training and I dealt with snow 4 mornings in a row and we had to delay leaving because the hotel parking lot had been snowed in and they didn't have the equipment to dig it out.
Yes. I am not sure why it is difficult to understand. Increased temperature is adding energy to the climate. This extra energy increases volatility. Snow in south Texas (areas with little history of snow) may be a sign of climate volatility--a sign of climate change in the form of increasing warmth--especially if these temperature/weather extremes occur at increasing rates (or less time between instances).

And... TOS ... TOS.... TOS.... moving on. Looks like we're back to 70s for a while after 60s today.

As a side note-- we're having a pretty typical La Nina-- the polar stream shifts and dips to give you snow in Texas.

Wow, snow in the southern States. Houston is probably quite right to go bat**** crazy. First there was harvey and now this in the same year. They have to be wondering what is next. I would be worried too.

We like snow so I like all the pics that I found but I understand that it's unusual. It's cold here but a warm wet spell took away the snow. Oh we have flurries almost daily but it's busy irritating the southern US States. That's ok, we can wait and enjoy your snow pics in the meantime.

At sunrise, 52 F degrees, calm, & partly cloudy. Spinach seedlings are now nearly all sprouted up in the tiny raised box garden. But the Red Romaine lettuce have yet to emerge. Hoping the 2016 seed was still viable.

Clear to partly cloudy with highs in the low to mid 70s for as far as can be seen in the extended forecast

That's a bit warm. Wouldn't you prefer sunny and 12 F? No wind either. New snow is still reflecting sunlight in large crystalline flakes. Very pretty. Perfect for enjoying a nice Latakia mixture. I'm thinking of opening a tin of Westminster.

It's a bit nippy here at -16C (3F) and dropping to -21C (-6F) over night. Plus there's a breeze so it feels a bit colder. But it's clear, of course. -17C at the the top of the world in Alert and we're dropping with the temp up there. It's warmer in Winnipeg so the world is out of kilter. -5F used to be the lower limit for the little kids (6-8 yo) playing organized hockey on outdoor rinks. Many memories there. We volunteered to make sure they weren't being frost bitten or losing toes due to tight skates when it was below zero. As 14-16 yo we each had one or two little ones to watch over.

We have some snow again too and the lakes up here are starting to freeze over so one can see snow on the lakes. They won't be clear again until mid April. Everything is hibernating except the most hardy creatures.

No snow, even in the mountains, and it’s unusually warm for this time of year.
Ski areas here are really hurting.

One of my students is Ski Patrol at Telluride. She hasn’t worked a single day yet.

Mrs. DP loves it. She hates snow.
Go figure. She married a former ski bum.

Tomorrow will have a high of 72 F but after that highs only in the mid sixties. Partly cloudy on Sunday but otherwise sunny.

Highly unusual small thunderstorms rolled through here early in the morning. Some with nearby lightning strikes. I've lived here off and on for almost 10 years and this NEVER happens in December. T-Storms are during monsoon (July-Sept)

When our granddaughters were here, Christmas before last, we had 4’ of snow on the ground.

Oh boy! The photo reminds me of a massive rock formation, most similar to the one behind you in this great photo! All the locals called it something, which a sieve of a memory now 'days was Ship-something. Ship-Rock? With our oldest daughter and only son, we climbed it one day and I gook photos of us sitting on the crest of the 'bow' of the ship.

Thanks for sharing this photo. I've passed Durango several times! Merry Christmas!
