Episode Narrative A vigorous low pressure system in the upper atmosphere moved just south of the Texas Panhandle and produced blizzard conditions across all but the extreme southeast Texas Panhandle. As much as two feet of snow fell across the northeast Texas Panhandle with generally four to twelve inches of snow elsewhere. Approximately thirteen hundred residents in southeast Amarillo lost power along with twelve hundred residents in the Darrouzett...Follett...and Higgins areas...and six hundred residents in the Pringle area north of Stinnett. There were one hundred and thirty-six stranded motorists rescued in the Dalhart area and Amarillo police officers worked sixty-seven vehicular accidents due to the blizzard. Preliminary estimates are that about thirty-four hundred cattle were killed in the blizzard. No injuries or fatalities were reported.
Event Narrative A trained spotter in Dalhart reported fourteen inches of snow along with snow drifts to fourteen feet...visibilities of less than one quarter of a mile...and winds of thirty to forty knots with gusts to fifty-two knots.
