The National Weather Service says a mixture of sleet and snow is falling Thursday morning from Baton Rouge east across much of southeastern Louisiana.

The winter weather closed some schools and created hazardous driving conditions.

From the local news coverage, Houston appears to be one big fender bender.

What is this white stuff, anyway?

Yep. I’m sure Bush had Dick Cheney tweak the hurricane machine in order to inflict more suffering on New Orleans.

Gore and Obama sure picked the right time to make their joint global warming pitch.

They're about to get a cold weather/snow event on the West coast this weekend.

Gore's credibility is going to take a "stock market crash dive" when reality (again) proves him wrong.

I was there in ‘90 when it snowed around Christmas. I was down in the Vieux Carrie but got across the GNO to the Westback before noon.

From then on the traffic was at a standstill. It took many 6-hours to get across. A nightmare.

Heavy, wet snow in Metairie. Everything is white- it’s sticking to everything but the wet sidewalk. Stunningly beautiful-makes even the swamp beautiful.
Ahhhhh, this is magic, a Christmas gift that is also going up to north Alabama where a child I love more than anything will be thrilled to see it. If only I were with her.

The last time it snowed in New Orleans it was CHRISTMAS DAY 2004! Million to one odds on that- of course we got the flip side of those odds with Katrina the following year.
Lets hope this miraculous snowfall portends wonderful things. But for today- it’s magic, like a dream- and I’m taking my little Maltepoo outside to enjoy it in his sweater. He’s named after a snowman, after all...where’s the camera..

I’d like some here.

IMO, it should snow before and around Christmas - then it can go away until next Christmas.

Just a side effect of Cheney disconnecting the Weather Control Machine to move it into hiding in Wyoming before January 20.

Snowing in Houston Texas as well. Here in Watertown N.Y. we were at (minus) -16 degrees Sunday night, and that was NOT the wind chill!

I had snow balls saved in the freezer from that White Christmas South Texas had a few years ago. Last year the freezer went out and they melted. I was more upset about my snow than the meat I lost :’)

I was thinking the same things... FEMA will have to put heaters in the trailers now, and then provide a space heater for every one in New Orleans... all Bushs fault of course.. he did not for see this coming, as he took Gores word for global warming..

Is there a global warming conference in session in New Orleans? Perhaps one is scheduled for next week and will have to be cancelled due to inclement weather.

It’s beautiful in Baton Rouge. I’m the only one in my group that made it in to work. They closed I-12 for a while and the schools all closed.

As of 9:30am it’s changed from snow to rain.

Cool day though. Let it snow...

The snow is about an inch. But it melts on the street. Big fluffy snow flakes. Can’t drive.

All the locals say they can’t stop giggling.

Snow is so beautiful!

This is just the back side of “global warming”.

Things change. Get used to it.

Now it shall turn out that Narlins has no snow removal equipment.

Or they could put snow plows on all the school buses.

Oh, that’s right. They all got drowned a few years ago, and nobody got around to replacing them.
