  1. Badass dust storm .... 1972 I think. Being from Missouri, I wasn't familiar with this type of weather. Had the top down on my GTO and had a devil of a time trying to get the mud out of the interior.

  2. That was by far the worst cold spell on record. I had just moved back to the area after 5 winters up north and felt like I had brought back winter from Indiana/Connecticut. From DFW weather.org: "On December 18, 1983, one of the severest Arctic cold snaps in modern day plunged into Texas. The mercury dipped below freezing at 7:00 am on December 18th and remained below freezing until 2:00 pm, December 30th, for a record of 295 consecutive hours of freezing/subfreezing temperatures. This of course made December 1983 the coldest December on record for Dallas/Fort Worth with an average monthly temperature of 34.8°F. This is 12.1°F below normal for the month and 4°F colder than any other cold December of record. The coldest temperatures recorded during this period was 5°F on December 22, 1983." Lots of guys working on the holidays in single-digit temps with water around the freezing point...really felt sorry for them. 12.29 days at or below freezing!!!

    My strangest at TCU was in the Spring of 1966 when one morning I looked out my window at Milton Daniel and saw my car, parked on Stadium drive almost completely submerged, with water about halfway up the lawn between Stadium and MD (pre-Moncrief, obviously). Had to get a brand new interior in my car, which was not as good as the original.:(

  3. Yep, a pre-dawn cloudburst shut down places all over town that didn't normally flood....Lots of folks late to school/work that day....
  4. November 9th, 1991. The infamous TCU v atm Thursday night game on ESPN. Crazy cold front blew thru that afternoon. Incredibly windy and COLD! And an absolute horrible game. Not the craziest weather event I witnessed at TCU, but the one I associate with a TCU sporting event.
  5. Worse than the Baylor freezing monsoon game?
  6. Way, way worse. I’ve walked a mile each way across the Volga river in January during a snow storm, but I’ve never been colder in my life than at that TCU game.
  7. I don't know. I wasn't at the baylor freezing monsoon game. 2 very different weather events. But if that's your most memorable weather story then definitely go with it.
