I will never forget this day. December 11, 2008. A strong, cold core upper level low pushed east out of Texas carrying heavy snow with it. Many of us stayed up all night on the forum watching traffic cameras in Houston to Lake Charles to Lafayette to Baton Rouge following the snow as it approached. At my house, the rain turned to sleet during the night and around 5am, it turned to all snow. It snowed pretty heavy for 5 hours, and when it was done, I had 8 inches on the ground in Livingston. The snow stayed on the ground for a week in shady spots. We were out of power for 4 days.

It snowed at my house for about 30 min but it melted as soon as it touched the ground. Wanted to go take a road trip as there was snow on the ground only a 30 min drive away. But couldn't because I was working at Dillard's at the time and had to go to work and was too late by the time I got off
