50 years ago today!

Recommended Posts

It was exactly 50 years ago today while sitting in Mrs. Tillinghast's class at Love Elementary that Jimmy Hulme shouted out, “It's snowing!” No one turned to look because Jimmy was prone to shouting that out as a joke.

But he quickly followed with, “No, it really IS snowing!” It was the very first time most of us had ever seen snow. February 12th, 1961 will always be fondly etched in my mind.

I mentioned this to my sister just about an hour ago. I was in the 6th grade at Horn Elementary in Bellaire. After school, my grandmother took my sister and me to her house in West University to spend the night. The next day we built two snowmen in her front yard.

My sister lives in Georgia and it's snowing there right now.

Don't you mean 49 years ago today?

No, he really meant 50 years ago today.

Cool link. You know, now that I think about it, I believe there's some old news footage of the 1960 snowfall floating around the web somewhere. I think KTRK filmed it.
