KTRE viewers share snow day memories

From first snow days to first snowmen, inches of fresh powder covered deep East Texas.

Families in Lufkin woke up to yards transformed into a winter wonderland.

These children stood in their yard hoping to catch a taste of the falling ice.

 While this snow woman, armed with a bible and bright pink hat is ready for church.

 And she wasn't alone, there was no shortage of snowmen Friday and they come in all shapes in sizes and styles.

In Nacogdoches, one family made a snowman you could hold in your hand, while in Lufkin this snowman is twice the size of this toddler and in Diboll a group of junior high students collaborated to make a snow man with school spirit.

 A view from Memorial Hospital in Lufkin, shows a parking lot filled with cars over taken with snow.

 While the parking lot at West Sabine ISD sat idle for a snow day.

Cars sat nearly unrecognizable in driveways in Hudson and in Ratcliff where residents say the snow was ankle deep.

Even though the cars at the Hudson Police Department were covered with ice officials say they still wanted to warn drivers to stay safe on the road.

One Lufkin family took a stroll through the wintry scene, and the field at Abe Martin Stadium sat idle Thursday night as it was covered with snow.

And check this out, the Karber family in Lufkin captured a photo of this bald eagle on McClendon Road.

But not even a little snow could get could stop these girls from enjoying time on their trampolines.

But it wasn't just the kids out in the ice this Lufkin pooch had a blast running through the ice and this Sabine County family enjoyed some quality time with their dogs in the snow.

While the vision of icicles and snow field lawns have melted away East Texas families have enough memories to last until the next snowpocalypse hits East Texas.
