Christmas in June?
A hail-producing thunderstorm over the northern suburbs of Houston, Texas, on June 28, 2019.

It snowed in Houston on Friday. The blizzard caused whiteout conditions, and Houstonians were spotted hunkering in their homes, surrounded by mile-high snowbanks. Well, okay, maybe it wasn't that snowy, but it did technically snow! According to the Chronicle, a "trace" of hail was recorded at Houston Intercontinental Airport, and hail is officially classified by the government as "snow."
The trace amount smashed Houston's previous snowfall record for the day, which was, unsurprisingly, 0.00 inches. In other words, there was just enough "snow" to make a microscopic snowman.
