For several hours on Wednesday, the snow came down before some people even got up. The winter weather impressed our morning crew, at the Brazos Center, for the Food for Families Food Drive.
"Look at the snow," said Shane McAuliffe
However, the precipitation didn't impress everyone.
"I'm from the panhandle, so I'm used to a little more snow than this," said Texas A&M student, Libby Dempsey. "I guess it was exciting."
By the afternoon, the flakes were falling again.
"Well its snowing which we don't normally see in Texas, so its exciting," said 14-year-old Tillie Benson. Benson said this was only the third time she had ever seen snow in the Brazos Valley.
"I got my dog and we took pictures together 'cause it was her first snow that she'd ever seen," said Benson.
Several snow-lovers had the same idea, and sent pictures of their pooches to KBTX.
"Tried to make a little snowman but it didn't really work," said Benson. "He didn't really make it."
Others also attempted to build snow children: on the car, on the table, there was even a snow baby keeping an eye on the food drive at the Brazos Center.
The snowman the took the cake, was a foot-and-a-half tall monster on Springloop Drive, who weathered the cold with a smile.
"I hope it stays for Christmas so we can have a white Christmas here in Texas," said Benson.
