In a town where snow is almost a word belonging to a foreign dialect, two good snows in a row, is cold territory.
Kristina Hernandez said she and her friends aren’t used to the snowy weather, but have found constructive ways to survive it.
“It is really cold, but having the snow makes it worth it,” she said. “It gives ya something to do anyways.”
Hernandez said she knew it wouldn’t be long before the snow melted and made its way into the gutters, so she planned to enjoy it why she still could.
“Since it doesn’t snow much here we have to try and take advantage of it while we can,” she said. “So last night we couldn’t resist having a snowball fight.”
And it seems Hernandez’s prediction that the snowy weather will soon be a thing of the past, could be right on the dot.
Odessa can expect no more snow for the remainder of the week, but instead a slowly warming climate KOSA-TV Meteorologist Mike Moritz said.
Moritz said he expected today to be a day of mostly sunny skies and a high in the mid 50s.
Tuesday increasing clouds are expected and a high in the upper 50s and Wednesday Moritz’s predictions included mostly cloudy and a high in the mid 60s.
“No more snow expected right away,” Moritz said, “We’re going to warm in up and expect some clouds.”
But in the mean time, residents like Hernandez, plan to have all the fun in the sun — and snow — while they still can.
