90 Years Ago, Texas Was Hit With The Worst Blizzard In History
We’ve had a pretty mild winter across much of Texas this time around, but an entirely different story unfolded exactly 90 years ago. Over two feet of snow covered nearly half the state in December of 1929, setting a record that has yet to be broken.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
