It’s quite the day to be a resident in the Southeast! As New England prepares for feet of snowfall and roaring 40+ mph winds, people as far south as Florida are enjoying snow for the first time in decades.
This morning in Tallahassee, Florida’s state capitol, people were stunned to see it not only snow, but so much so that it actually stuck on the ground. The last time it came close to snow sticking in Tallahassee, local schools such as FSU and FAMU cancelled classes for two days so unaccustomed students didn’t have to drive on icy roads. Today, Tallahassee’s main highway I-10 was shutdown for the same reason for more than 3 hours. Below, you can see a famous statue on Florida State University’s campus frozen over from the below freezing temperature.
People indulged in the rare occurrence, as many took to Facebook with home videos of how they spent the historic day. Some even tried skiing in their yards as children ran around in snow suits. With reports that this will be the worst winter season weather-wise in decades, and the first official day of winter only being two weeks ago, you have to wonder…will Florida see another snowfall this year?
