Record Snowfall

by snapshot2 Forum moderator / February 14, 2010 8:02 AM PST

North Texas is not noted for its big snowfalls.
Dallas weather records go back for 111 years.
They got a record breaking 12.5 inches of show on Feb 11.

I live 50 miles from Dallas and got 8.5 inches of snow.

Here is a photo from my front porch on the morning of Feb 12:

I cropped out the ornamental windmill for this next photo.
The windmill stands 8 feet tall:

Since our temperature was around 32 degrees and started to climb, the snow didn't last long.
As of today, only a trace remains.

I remembered that when I was there in the late 80s and early 90s. But, the pictures you shot showed me that it snowed quite a lot, breaking the more than a century snowfall record. I really want to trade you for that.

Currently, it's summer like in Bangkok ( upper 90F during the day ), so hot and humid.. yak... I stay inside a/c room mostly. The construction workers were hit hard by heat stroke recently; there's no other choice for them. This year, summer will be aweful around the globe. Just like what happened in Brazil and Australia.

Enjoy the cold weather while it last. I still prefer the cooler climate. Take care Joe..

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
