This Day in History January 18, 1925

Being a former Texan (and the fact that we are currently awaiting our biggest snowstorm in the Pacific Northwest in years), I found this story quite interesting.  You can see here a picture of the state of Texas, and  Wichita Falls is featured prominently.  And it just so happens that on this date in 1925, a record was set in Wichita Falls, one that is somewhat unusual for this part of the country.

Wichita Falls received 9.8 inches on that auspicious day.  It is its snowiest day on record so far.  Maybe one day that will change.  I have to admit that is a lot of snow.  They are only predicting somewhere around 6 inches or so.
