This month’s rare snowstorm through Texas and much of the South dumped several inches of snow on Houston and other areas that don’t usually get snow.
So far, 2017 has been colder than normal and has dropped snow on parts of Houston and the surrounding area that usually doesn’t see a lot of the white stuff.
While it’s rare for Texans to have to deal with that much snow, it created a unique opportunity for owners of homes with patio covers to enjoy the outdoors from a new perspective.
Patio Covers Houston — Let It Snow!
While other homeowners had to figure out how they were going to remove snow from their backyards — most Houston residents don’t have snow blowers or snow shovels in their garages — those with patio covers could simply open their back doors, walk out onto their clear, dry patio, and enjoy the natural beauty of a snow-covered yard.
The Texas snowstorm was something of a surprise for many people. But it was a pleasant one for homeowners with patio covers.
Patio covers protect against snow and ice as well as rain and other weather conditions. They truly allow you to enjoy your backyard all year round, even when Mother Nature decides to throw a curve ball such as snow in Texas.
Patio Covers Houston — Year Round Enjoyment
While the snow that fell on Houston didn’t stick around very long, for those homeowners with patio covers, it created a new kind of outdoor experience.
Many people surely fired up the barbecue grill and held an impromptu backyard cookout so they could make the most of the rare combination of snowy conditions and Texas hospitality.
Life isn’t always predictable. Nor is Texas weather. So when nature provides something unexpected such as a Texas snowstorm, you can make the most of it when you have a backyard patio cover that provides protection against the elements.
