Yes, those are snowfall records in Texas. And yes, it is still Fall.

Recent cold/snowstorms:

Bulgaria bracing for blizzard – Code orange for dangerous weather has been declared for half of Bulgaria.

Prince Harry’s race to South Pole resumed after blizzard

Arctic winds and heavy snowfall hitting Italy – One-and-a-half meters of snow in some places.

Another Valdez, Alaska, snow record – 14.7 inches (37 cm) of snowfall Sunday broke the Nov 24 record

Heavy ice delays Antarctic icebreaker for second year in a row – The Aurora Australis was due to return to Hobart more than a week ago

Heavy snow in Macedonia – The snow-cover is now of more than 30 cm (12 inches) in Popova Sapka and Pelister.

Heavy snowfall all over the Balkans: Heavy snowfall Monday night as a result of a low pressure front from Italy covers the Balkans.

Factory roof collapses under heavy snow – Nine killed – Highways closed and flights canceled in many areas.

Heavy snowfall in the mountains of Greece: Snow moving machinery is clearing roads this morning in the mountainous prefecture of Ioannina (Greece).

Massive snow dump on London, Ontario

Arctic Ice Extent Highest In A Decade

Global Sea Ice Area Highest In 25 Years, 6th Highest On Record

How can this onslaught of snowy weather be reconciled with the claims of global warming which climate scientists have been warning us about for decades? When we experience monster snowstorms and record snowfall amounts, the existence of global warming seems counter-intuitive. With all this snow, it seems like winters are getting colder.

The term “global warming” is an unfortunate choice of words to describe the current and predicted changes to global weather patterns. Heavy snowfall events reinforce the perception among some that global warming is not occurring, a perception which prevents taking actions to help mitigate the effects of climate change. Being concerned about global warming doesn’t make apparent sense when you’re knee-deep in snow.

“Climate change” is a more accurate term to describe the condition of our changing weather patterns.

Snowfall amounts are largely driven by the amount of moisture in humid air when Arctic cold fronts collide with warm fronts advancing from southern regions. This effect can be influenced by diverse factors such as El Nino weather patterns. But record warm weather, according to physicist Michio Kaku, can heat the oceans and generate more moisture, which in turn can drive larger storms, producing more snowfall.

you really have no clue what people mean by climate change or global warming if you think it's supposed to mean that its never going to be cold or snow... taking it too literally pal. please enlighten your brain.

If you think the Earth is hot now, try wearing plate armor in the Middle Ages.

A Swedish study found that the planet was warmer in ancient Roman times and the Middle Ages than today, challenging the mainstream idea that man-made greenhouse gas emissions are the main drivers of global warming.

The study, by scientist Leif Kullman, analyzed 455 “radiocarbon-dated mega-fossils” in the Scandes mountains and found that tree lines for different species of trees were higher during the Roman and Medieval times than they are today. Not only that, but the temperatures were higher as well.

“Historical tree line positions are viewed in relation to early 21st century equivalents, and indicate that tree line elevations attained during the past century and in association with modern climate warming are highly unusual, but not unique, phenomena from the perspective of the past 4,800 years,” Kullman found.“Prior to that, the pine tree line (and summer temperatures) was consistently higher than present, as it was also during the Roman and Medieval periods.”

Kullman also wrote that “summer temperatures during the early Holocene thermal optimum may have been 2.3°C higher than present.” The “Holocene thermal optimum was a warm period that occurred between 9,000 and 5,000 years ago. This warm period was followed by a gradual cooling period.”

According to Kullman, the temperature spikes were during the Roman and Medieval warming periods “were succeeded by a distinct tree line/temperature dip, broadly corresponding to the Little Ice Age.”

For many years now, there was an alleged scientific consensus that the Earth was warming due to humans releasing greenhouse gases into the air — primarily through burning fossil fuels. However, temperatures stopped rising after 1998, leaving scientists scrambling to find an explanation to the hiatus in warming.

Increasingly, scientists are looking away from human causes and looking at solar activity and natural climate variability for explanations of why the planet warms and cools.

When the last ice age ended did they think global warming was happening? Think about it.
