Seven years ago, Fort Worth and the downtown courthouse seen here were covered in a rarely seen blanket of white. The Dallas-Fort Worth area experienced a record-breaking snowfall that February, with DFW Airport reporting more than 12 inches of snow. The following year, February weather made news again when snowfall and freezing temperatures threatened to interfere with Super Bowl XLV in Arlington. Eventually, the freeze passed, and the Green Bay Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25.
