Facebook + posts printFort Worth did not suffer as badly from the weather conditions last night as it was expected to. The winter storm hit surrounding areas in north Texas but stayed mild throughout the city of Fort Worth.Fort Worth commuters saw reasonable conditions yesterday morning when traveling to work and school. There was plenty of precipitation around the area but, because temperatures stayed high, the snow did not stick.The WFAA said snow began to fall in Fort Worth yesterday morning around 7:20 a.m. Most of the snow was seen south of Fort Worth in areas such as Waco and Waxahachie.“We saw a very decent morning when it comes to traffic,” Neighborhood Patrol Officer Mario Cabello said. “Everybody kept a slow pace when traveling and kept gaps between cars at a safe distance. This really helped keep accidents at a minimum.”Cabello said they did not see as many cars out on the road in the morning. She said most people seemed to have stayed at home if they were able.Fort Worth ISD delayed school by two hours, which cut down the early morning traffic rush. The sun was out by the time schools opened, melting the ice and making transportation much safer.“We prepared for the storm by covering our plants with tarp for protection, made a quick trip to target for food for the kids, and kept our blankets handy,” said Lara Newman, a resident of Overton Woods and mother to two toddlers.“We stayed inside and made cookies to distract the boys from their interest in going outside.”More snow is expected to hit Fort Worth later in the week according Facebook TAGSWeather Twitter Fort Worth braces for more severe weather The 109 TCU athletes are “SPARK-ing” an interest in Fort Worth area students ReddIt The 109 ReddIt The 109 The 109 TCU athletes are “SPARK-ing” an interest in Fort Worth area students Previous articleSalon’s sale sets standards for successNext articleBass family private collection opening at the Kimbell The 109 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin Stories from the polls: Election Day in The109!
