It’s snowing in Austin. People are freaking out. 

Reports of snow in parts of Austin came in a flurry Thursday afternoon. The National Weather Service told folks to enjoy the white stuff while it lasted:

The first snowfall of the year fell in San Marcos, Texas, on Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017. Many people took to the streets and the city’s square to enjoy the snow mixed with holiday lights.

Even if you can’t see snow where you are, it’s fun to watch folks freak out about it. (This is Austin. This kind of thing just doesn’t happen that often.) Here’s what people had to say on Twitter. Have pictures of the snow? We want to see them. Email us at
