Yes, it snows in Texas. Here’s proof, from Big Bend

You may have heard that it’s still winter in Texas. I say “heard” because the only indication of winter that most parts of Texas ever get during the colder months of the year is a few cold snaps and some allergy flare-ups.

But over the weekend at Big Bend National Park, it looked like a winter wonderland.

According to the San Antonio Express-News, the snow lasted from Friday night to mid-afternoon on Saturday. Jennette Jurado, public information officer for the park, which only sees snow three or four times a year, said it was a “rare and special” occasion.

“It’s very exciting for us,” she said.

Other hikers and campers were enthusiastic about the snow, too. Check out these photos of the snow from this weekend:
