SAN ANTONIO – One year ago Texas experienced an unprecedented winter storm that brought single-digit temperatures to many parts of the state, including San Antonio.

Several inches of snow fell in the KSAT viewing area and, after enduring a brutally cold week, it warmed up several days later and people were wearing shorts as the last of the snow melted.

While there was horrible tragedy due to the failure of Texas power grid, there was also beauty in seeing a snow-covered city that’s known more for blistering hot summers than frigid winters.

Here’s a look back at the snowy aftermath of Texas’ 2021 winter storm:
