December 25 in San Antonio history…
The roof and central dome of San Jose y San Miguel de Aguayo Mission collapse during a midnight Mass. Fortunately, the mass is being held in an adjoining room instead of the nave.
It’s not a white Christmas in San Antonio – far from it! The mercury rises to a record high of 90 degrees in the Alamo City. Still a record high for the date.
Three days into what would be a particularly cold winter in the Alamo City, the temperature never rises above 30 degrees. Still a record low high temperature for the date.
