I took the following two pictures in Tranquility Park, in downtown Houston, Texas, on my way home from work last night:
Facing the intersection of Smith and Walker, towards One Shell Plaza
Facing in the opposite direction, towards Hobby Center for the Performing Arts
Though the park is named after the Sea of Tranquility, where Neil Armstrong famously trod, lo, these many (pardon the pun,) moons ago, that white substance seen covering the grass is not, in fact, moondust. Rather, it is snow.
Having lived in Houston since 1994, I had only once before seen snow in the air above Texas. That time, it was only a few small flakes that fell briefly in mid-winter, circa early 1996. I had never seen snow clinging to Texas soil before. And this time, it consisted of plentiful, downy feathers, falling for an extended period, and sticking, during the first half of December! (not usually a particularly snowy time of year in most of the United States.)
Here is a picture of my car, which was parked at the time near US59 and Hillcroft, 10 miles away by road, probably 7 or 8 miles (11 to 13 km) to the southwest, as the crow flies:
At work today I heard from colleagues who had seen snow in south Houston, and also in Sugarland, quite a few miles further to the southwest. This demonstrates that the snowfall was not some fluke affecting one neighborhood, but the result of a substantial front that extended across the metro area.
While the warmist faithful will cling to an orthodoxy in which they imagine the devil's molecule, CO2, to be baking the Earth as punishment for the sin of Man's industrial and vehicular activities, with the publication in this forum of my latest Houston weather photos, there is less evidence for this fanciful notion than ever before.
