Houston is predicted to have a much wetter and colder winter this year thanks to a fading El Niño pattern. And if anything was proven by last week's snowstorm, it's that it may very well be possible for Houston to have a white Christmas in a few weeks.
While we laughed ironically about the possibility of three to six inches of snow last Friday, our teasing turned to childlike rapture as the flakes began to fall from the sky that morning. Luckily, our Flickr photographers were there to capture the scenes for those of us stuck in offices all day. Enjoy the best photos from Houston's snow day in our slideshow.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
