Snow? In Fort Worth?

This past Christmas Eve it snowed in Texas… about 3 inches… this is a big deal. Never-mind that the day I left New York for Dallas I couldn’t see the steps OR handrail down my brownstone’s entrance having been buried in the blizzard and I still managed to get to the airport with an on time flight departure. BUT.. 3 inches in Texas means the city shuts down. I don’t think I’ve ever seen downtown Fort Worth so quiet and empty. The only two people “crazy enough” to be out taking pictures in this weather was a newspaper photographer and me.
