The first snow of the season fell in West Texas, USA yesterday dropping about 4 cm on the city of El Paso which straddles the border with Mexico.
My cousin, who lives in El Paso, sent me photos of the early winter wonderland.
Although El Paso is in the American Southwest, the city does occasionally see snow due to its high elevation.
The U.S. Weather Service notes El Paso receives about 16 cm of snow in an average winter although some storms have dropped large accumulations of 30 cm or more.
Snow also fell in neighbouring New Mexico where a major interstate highway was closed and temperatures dipped to as low as -15 C.
