Winter in San Angelo, Texas


Well, winter fell on a Tuesday, here in San Angelo.  We woke up with three inches of the stuff on the ground.  Knowing it would be around for a very short while, I rushed out to San Angelo State Park for some wintry shots.  I wasn’t feeling 100% because of a medical problem that prompted me to go to the ER the previous evening.  I was much better, but I just drove through the park and got a few grab shots from the window of the car.  These are not esthetically my best, but they will serve to show you that we do have some pretty wintry scenes occasionally.

There you have it.  That may be the only chance I get any winter pictures from here.  But never say never.  January and February are historically the two coldest months of the year here, so there is always a chance of more.

  2. We had a tremendous thunderstorm and heavy rain last night but luckily did not stay for too long. Then later it warmed up a bit.
    Bob your photos are always good! But take care of yourself first, Ok buddy?

  3. Bob, that looks like more snow than we got a few days ago here in Utah and that light snow was our heaviest here in the Salt Lake Valley this winter. I keep hoping for more. Love your snowy images!

  4. We heard that your area got wintery and Mid/Ods got 12 inches we got 24 degrees and ice… Your pictures are there usual standard of excellence and we enjoy seeing them…Thanks Bob

  5. You have more winter than we do!! For the last week it has been 50 degrees during the day and clear. We haven’t had any snow on the ground since the first week of November. I’m glad that you are well enough to go out, and hope that it is nothing serious. I love that white crowned sparrow! 🙂

    • Thanks for the comment, Ted. I am fine now, just a little temporary thing. The weather sure is a curious thing this year. More snow in the south than there is in the north. Ours, though, was gone by noon Tuesday. It warms up pretty quick here in the day.
