Transcript Eureka . . . Snow in Houston February 19 begins as a bitter-cold day. Rain and a few spatterings of ice drip from a heavy- looking lead gray sky as students make their way to classes, their feet soaked and cold. At 11 a.m., the first few flurries of white float from the sky. More and more follow until the campus and the entire Houston area are covered with an unnatural pallor. The freeways are closed and traffic moves in an anguished bumper-to-bumper fashion in the heart of the Bayou City. On the campus, snowball fights break out as many students enjoy their first north-style interlude. Others to whom snow is no novelty, have a break in the usual Houston weather. The white crystalline cover blanketed Houston for only 24 hours. As it withdrew, the pace of the city continued, the University campus resumed its normal appearance and the students returned to their classes with a memory of the day it snowed in Houston. Students revel in the snow, making snowmen wherever the mood strikes them. 131
