Record Snowfall Hits North Texas!

I can no longer complain about not having pictures of snow to scrapbook! Between yesterday (2/11/10) and this morning north Texas has broken snowfall records!

The Dallas Morning News reported this morning:

The 11.2 inches of snow that had fallen by midnight Thursday at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport topped the previous record for snowfall in one day of 7.8 inches recorded in 1917 and 1964.

The 12.4 inches that had fallen by 4 a.m. Friday also broke the 24-hour record of 12.1 inches Jan. 15 and Jan. 16, 1964.

Thursday’s snow also catapulted seasonal accumulation to 15.7 inches, according to the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.
That is a lot of snow for us around here! Of course my camera is still in the shop so I am learning a lot about my new video/point and shoot camera today as I try to get some good photos of this rare snowfall.

I guess I should go play in the snow - NOT!! LOL I think I will just enjoy it from inside ;)

Stay warm everyone - spring is just around the corner!!!
