Except for some 3-minute showers we have not had any measurable precipitation in months. Of course, this being 2020 it rained all night, morning, and afternoon. We had strong wind gusts last evening. It is still drizzling and very cold outside. We only reached a high of 39 degrees today.
There was snow in nearby cities but thankfully we did not get any. The San Antonio TV stations sent their reporters to Kerrville an hour away from the Alamo City and where many people drove to photograph, video, and play in the snow. They interviewed a lady from the Philippines who had never seen snow in her life.
Alpine and the Big Bend area had more than a foot of snow in some locations. John Wells of The Field Lab fame put out a video of his winter wonderland http://thefieldlab.blogspot.com/2020/12/a-little-snow.html
We had over 100 new Covid cases yesterday thus triggering a State mandate that closed the local bars down on Wednesday. At least that will cut down on places for people to congregate this evening.
So much for the ban on fireworks in Val Verde County. While not on our street (for now) they have been firing them off right and left since this afternoon.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
