1985 – SNOW!
Just after midnight, it began to snow in San Antonio. It snowed all night and most of the next day, finally dropping a record 13 inches of the white stuff on the Alamo City. The previous record was 4.7 inches on January 30, 1949. The Taco Cabana at San Pedro and Hildebrand stays open, too!
