Spring rolls into Houston and makes a loud statement
Spring rolled into Houston Wednesday morning and made a statement. Hail, wind, thunder, lightning and rain. Mother Nature put out a display in the early morning hours. While some parts of the Houston area saw just heavy rain and lightning. Other parts, like in Brookshire woke up to the sound of hail pounding their roofs or cars.
The rain also made for a slippery commute for tens of thousands of motorists. It was slow going on just about every freeway in the city as numerous fender benders slowed things way down.
