Ghosts of Dallas: Ice Storm at SMU, 1979

A snapshot of winter weather then and now.


Louisa Meyer contributes this entry. She writes: “The center picture is of my husband and his brother and was on the cover of the Dallas Morning News the first week of January 1976. I took the other shot Friday. With leaves still on the trees today, I don’t think it is as interesting, but I had to seize the opportunity to re-create it. The next time there is a storm in January, I’ll return.”

CORRECTION: Upon further review, Louisa Meyer reports, this photo was more likely taken during the first week of January in 1979, following a New Year’s Eve ice storm. The headline has been changed.
