December 18 in San Antonio history…
The first snow since 1902 fell in San Antonio today. Starting slowly in the morning, the flakes had fallen thickly enough by 1 p.m. to cover the ground. Children, although confined in school, refused to study.
San Antonio records 2.9 inches of snow.
Mayor Henry Cisneros presides at dedication ceremonies for the Paseo del Alamo pedestrian walkway linking the Alamo and the San Antonio River. The Hyatt Regency Hotel also holds an invitation-only grand opening party.
