Man Enjoying a Rare Snowfall in Texas on Valentine’s Day in 1895

An interesting vintage photo of a snowball man enjoying a rare snowfall in Texas on Valentine’s Day in 1895.

The winter of 1894-1895 was unusually cold in much of the northern hemisphere. The coast of the Gulf of Mexico got unusually heavy snowfalls in February 1895. Much of Texas got hit around the middle of February, especially along the coast.

The National Weather Service website says, “February 12-15, 1895 – Widespread snow over the state, even as far south as the lower Valley. North Texas received between 3-5 inches, but a band of 10-20 inches blanketed the upper Texas coast, including Houston and Beaumont/Port Arthur.”
