This 1956 home movie captures the Snyder family enjoying a recent snowfall in Smithville. The family dog gets in on the action too, excitedly running around the snow-covered front yard. Later, a woman measures the snowfall at 6 inches deep. Central Texas was not the only place to see snow that winter. A blizzard across the Panhandle and South Plains produced the heaviest snowfall on record in Texas, with Plainview receiving close to 30 inches.
