El Pasoans were treated to a rare snow day Thursday (2/3/22) after a winter storm blanketed the area in varying amounts of snowfall.

Classes were cancelled, businesses allowed employees to work from home or didn't open at all as El Paso dealt with its first snowstorm since Valentine's Day 2021.

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow

Rain began turning to snow Wednesday evening after a strong arctic cold front made its presence known resulting in a bitterly cold and snowy landscape Thursday morning.

El Paso and the Franklin Mountains were transformed into various levels of a Winter Wonderland with some areas receiving more accumulation than others.

Whether it was a dusting, blanketing, or an inch or two, El Pasoans braved the cold to frolic in whatever amount of powdery white stuff fell in their neighborhood.

Some took the opportunity to make snow angels, while other built a snowman or had snowball battles before it melted away.

We asked our listeners to share photos of how they spent their snow day and the snow-covered scenery they woke up to.
