EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - On this day (April 7th) in weather history nine years ago, Deep East Texas received a rare and unusual late season snowfall.

On April 7, 2007, many areas from Crockett to Groveton and over toward Lufkin and Nacogdoches received two-to-four inches of snow.

This snow event was historic as it was the latest measurable snowfall to occur this far south in East Texas as far back as the records go.  That made what took place nine years ago today unprecedented.

What made this rare snow event that much more special was that it took place on a Saturday, which led to a white Easter Sunday the following day.

If you have any photos from that historic day, please feel free to post them on my facebook page.  I certainly remember that day fondly and it goes to show that even in April, we can see snow in East Texas, even though the odds are against it happening.
