Winter Blast Blows Through East Texas

Tyler residents awoke to a blanket of snow Saturday, but instead of staying inside, many made the most of it.

Snowmen were popular, so was the old fashioned snowball fight. With old man winter popping up just occasionally here in East Texas many said they just didn't want to miss it.

"We were headed South and it started snowing and we decided we didn't want to miss the snow so we just stoppped," said Earlene Butcher.

Many of the people we spoke with said the snow is great for a weekend, but they hope the weather gets back to normal Monday.
