Snow In Houston History?

It is snowing in Houston today. One to two inches are expected. It did last year about this time! In Houston it can snow one day and be 80 degrees the next.
While that might not be big news in much of the country, it rarely snows in Houston. History is proof.
Today’s snow is the earliest recorded snowfall ever in Houston.
What's the history of snow in Houston? How many times Houston citizens have seen snow falling from the sky?

Snow is falling in Houston today, the earliest snowfall ever recorded in the city's history. The white stuff was already falling by 8:30 in the morning, sending parents scrambling for school-closing info. Forecasters are predicting one to two inches over the course of the day, with some areas possibly looking at up to six inches.

Snow is unusual in Houston, with an event occurring nearly every 4 years. Snow has fallen approximately 31 times since 1895, more recently on December 4, 2009. Freezing rain events, also known as ice storms, can be detrimental to local traffic, and can close schools and businesses. The most recent ice storms occurred in 1997 and 2007.
