Snow Talk


So the morning courthouse conversation brought up this issue: One fine lady on the second floor proclaimed that Decatur had more snow in either 1987 or 1988 than this weekend. I was working in Dallas back then so I couldn't refute it. I doubted it, but couldn't back it up.

Even over distances of just a few miles, the snowfall can vary widely. A snow event may have narrow bands of intensity similar to the rainfall variations seen with summer storms. So a person that says last week was the most in 30 years can be telling the truth while someone just a few miles away can also be truthful stating that it was only a few years ago there was more snow.

North of Decatur, we roped steers on Jan. 1 in 80+ degree weather. Six days later the snow was so deep you could not push through it in a pickup and several folks w/ tractors had a tough time getting around.

Because of climate(global)warming, this years snow was lots hotter than back in 89.

She's right. It was about 85 degrees on a Friday (in March of '88 or '89) and the next day we had snow so deep that you couldn't tell where the fence posts were. Our mailman didn't even run his route because you couldn't tell where the road was - at all.
