GALVESTON, Texas - If you were to take a stroll around Galveston Friday afternoon, you would have never known it snowed throughout the night and early morning hours.

On the island, it was a mixture of snow and rain that didn't stick to the ground. Jamaica Beach saw its fair share of flakes, but most of the snow fell in Texas City. 

The Buc-ee's in Texas City had so much snow that employees had to brush off the pumps so customers could use them.

"I'm loving the snow," motorist Nicol Anderson said. "Look at what we have, we're going to have a merry Christmas this year with Santa Claus and all that."

Fortunately, there were no major accidents on the roadways. KPRC2 did, however, come across a vehicle that overturned on I-45 in La Marque. 

La Marque police had to close a portion of the southbound lanes to clear the car. There were no injuries.

While the snow stuck around for a few hours, it quickly moved southeast of Texas City and dissipated once it hit the Galveston shore in the late morning.
