It‘s just never not going to be a thing.
Snow in Austin, Texas, no matter how little, no matter how brown (or nonexistent) the next day, always feels a little special -- a gentle reminder that we‘re still allotted a few anomalous delights no matter how short-lived.
So, when snow flurries fell quietly throughout the city late Wednesday night, residents quickly took to social media to share in the awe.
One Twitter user admitted that he went so far as to having woken his kids up from a “dead sleep” so they could get a glimpse of the rare sight.

I woke up to...what is this? Is this snow in Austin? Maybe #IndyCar needs to bring snow tires for testing at #COTA next week? It will probably be back to 80 degrees though pic.twitter.com/Jfa85KXz5c— Mandy Curi (@MandyCTV) February 6, 2020

It doesn't often snow in AUSTIN TEXAS so when it does, you wake the kids up at 11 from a dead sleep and drag them out to see it lol pic.twitter.com/hCZFDaxxWW— Bruisr (@Bruisr_) February 6, 2020
Sometimes all it takes is a few flakes...
