Last week, East Texas’ pine and lake-dotted landscape transformed into an icy, sub-freezing tundra. The Tyler Loop asked readers to contribute photos of the rare week, and they responded with images as abundant as the drifts of snow. To read about the reasons for burst pipes and how the City of Tyler coped, check out The Tyler Loop’s “Ready or not: How did Tyler face tundra-like temperatures?” by Sarah A. Miller.
The following photos are thanks to our generous contributors who shared their snow experience with us: from scenes of wonder and beauty to images of danger destruction.
People caring for people
Precarious road conditions
Pets in snow
Kids and grown-ups at play
Challenges at home
