Massive Blizzard Blanketed Dallas – Fort Worth In Snow In 2010 And It Will Never Be Forgotten

For Northerners, a foot of snowfall is no big deal, but for folks in Dallas – Fort Worth, it has been called “the snowstorm of the century.” Locals went to bed on the evening of February 10, 2010, to forecasts of “possible” accumulations of 1 to 3 inches. What happened instead was an official 12.5 inches of snow that fell at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, which broke all records here for the heaviest snowfall for the date and the heaviest single-day snowfall on record. Locals even experienced the real, but rare, “thunder snow” with lightning flashes in the sky during a snowfall event. In the eyes of North Texans who hardly even don a winter coat, it was a true “Snowpocalypse!”

The best part about this event, too many, is that it just kept snowing for a solid 24 hours!
