Winter Wonderland
Christmas 2004


Winter Wonderland - Galveston, TXAfter two days with chill factors hitting a "balmy" 25-27 degrees, precipitation began to fall on The Island, on Christmas Eve, in the form of snow! It had not snowed in Galveston since 1989, so many young children had never seen the stuff. When the kids saw the snow falling, they rushed outside to make snowballs and snow men! Later that evening, the snow really started to blanket the area. People all over the City left the warmth of their homes to go outside and play in the strange white powder falling from the heavens!

Winter Wonderland - Galveston, TXChristmas morning, there were 9 inches of snow on the ground, so many residents decided to go out and explore The Island to see what it looked like draped in white, and many took pictures of this rare event. Although it has snowed a few times in Galveston, since its incorporation in 1839, according to local news services this is the first time in history that it has snowed on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day!! It was one of the heaviest local snowfalls in history, too! It even snowed in the lower Rio Grande Valley, which has not seen snow since 1895!
