One homeowner ignored evacuation orders. He hosed down his home while houses on their side were igniting and exploding:

"I was just drowning this place."

I like how we had a class day cancelled due to weather and it didn't rain, but now it's literally weather most have never driven in here and we have classes. I don't wanna die today.

Maddie Martin Michayla Strange 2013: half inch snow CANCEL EVERYTHING 2017: 4 inches overnight Suffer

I WAS SO EXCITED AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS POST & then I finished reading. Thanks for getting my hopes up 😕

Anyone who thought otherwise has more optimism than any human rightfully should. X'D

JohnConnor Haverkamp ONE......LAST.....final.....and this snow stands between us and our winter break

Jana Gomez Looks like you still have biochem tomorrow 🙃

Cool. TBH I would prefer to just get it over with #8DaysUntilGraduation

Hahaha some things never change Crystal Kae Garcia. A&M cancelled one time and it ended up being 50 degrees partly sunny.

Ryan Samadh lololol glad we got those days off back in the day. remember when i almost slipped and fell on my face right when stepped out of the rise? 😆

Glad that I took the day off today, lol!

It’d be super cool if my final got pushed back...

But there is still snow and ice everywhere

Hahahaha hahahah this is classic. *sees tornado in the distance, class isn’t canceled* Leah Badri

Balls

Wow!! I could hear y’all sighing all the way up here in Michigan!!!!😂🤣😂🤣😂😂😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂

Omgoodness, it's just snow ❄! Started with a hurricane and ended with biggest snowfall here ever!

Look Torrey Padgett - they are open tomorrow. Maybe they will send an email saying you're accepted. 😉👍🏼🙏🏻🎄❄️

what. I went to school in Nebraska with winds @ 40 and snowing. 10” every couple hours.

Haha!! Enjoy finals kids!! 😂😂

if only I were there and not in Mexico, i can know my future dear university

I can hear the horse laughs from here...

In the 80’s it was canceled for 1/2 “. These kids are tough! Blizzard of 17!

Much to the dismay of the students!

My daughter's friend took this picture:

We had our friend climb up in a tree and shake the snow from the branches so we could capture this

My son is a freshman, living on campus. The pictures have been beautiful! Started the semester with a hurricane and ended it with snow! Only in Texas, Gig'em

New Army will never know the joy of borrowing trays from the commons cafeteria and heading to Mt Aggie when it snowed.

My son and his roommates live at Gateway Apts this is what their neighbors did tonight 👍🏻

My son sends me this picture , he’s right outside the Library , and was so excited . Enjoy the snow , this is such a rare opportunity ❄️😘

My daughter and her Mister Rev out for a walk.

My Daughter send me this beautiful pictures she is loving it ☃️God Is Good All The Time!!Just Enjoy every Snowflake ❄️We Love You ❤️

TAMU Wake Board Team....probably the only ones with the closest thing to a snowboard readily available in Texas!! Cristyn Faythe Nichols looks like y'all are having a blast!!

Cancel finals! This is WAY too rare!!!!

Jeff Schneider, I still remember when it snowed in CS winter of 96/97 and you called to wake me up to make sure I didn't miss it! I was a little bitter about the early call but it was such a fun day!

The campus is beautiful in the snow. I remember back in the '70's being awakened in my room in Fowler by the noise from people laughing and 'tubing' behind a car in the heavy snow in the parking lot across the street (where ILSB sits now). I couldn't believe my eyes!

How beautiful!!! Cheyenne Castro, I️ bet you’re one of them running and making snow angels!!! I️ sure hope so!!! Take pics!! But please be safe! ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️🤗

I love it!!! I can’t imagine!!! We were wearing shorts this time of year in Aggieland!! They probably were too earlier in the week. LOVE THE PICS!! ❤️

I'm amazed. It has been a loooong time since I've seen snow in Texas. I know it happens but I never wake up in time before it melts away.

GraceAtama this is amazing and so beautiful😍😍😍😍😍. We should have been on campus to take so pictures

😊Very pretty. It is also snowing in Montgomery, TX!!!! However, not sticking and melting before it hits the ground.

Alejandro Cardenas no fuimos de vacas a Canadá 🇨🇦 rey pero casiiiii, te mandamos ❄️ la nieve ! Está increíble miren reinas Laura Camacho Karla Camacho Natalia Leyva
