Snow causes school, office delays
Posted on 12/8/2017 7:39:00 AM.

(Seguin) -- Something extraordinary happened in Seguin and all across parts of South Central Texas last night. It snowed! I'm not talking about sleet, which is not uncommon during this time of the year. Instead, we got a couple of steady hours of snow flurries, and the community largely erupted with joy. 

People were spotted all over town enjoying the snowfall -- throwing snowballs, making snow angels and building snowmen. 

The snow, while a welcome sight to many, also brought with it a big change for us this morning here at KWED. Today was our annual KWED Food and Toy Drive benefiting the Christian Cupboard and the Seguin Police Department's Blue Santa program. That usually means that we have lots of people collected toys, food and cash out in front of our station at 609 E. Court Street. There's normally tacos, coffee and hot chocolate being served and musical entertainment provided by students from Seguin and Navarro high schools. But the snowfall lead local schools to delay the start of the school day by two hours, which means the food and toy drive needed to be postponed. 

The annual KWED Food and Toy will now be held from 7 to 9 a.m. on Monday. We'll hit the reset button and try to do it all again on Monday. Folks are encouraged to bring new unwrapped toys, non-perishable food items or cash during the event on Monday morning. 

Speaking of delays, not only are most schools, both public and private -- including pre-schools -- are starting later today, but the city of Seguin and Guadalupe County offices will also start two hours later today.  The idea is to let things thaw out and warm up a bit, and also give motorists more daylight to navigate during these frigid continues. We are expecting clear skies today with a high around 55.
