AUSTIN (KXAN) — It’s not every day Central Texas gets winter weather like what the area experienced Thursday, and will continue to go through the rest of the week.

Viewers sent in their photos of what the freezing rain left behind, and while it’s awful to travel in, it’s nice to look at if you don’t need to go anywhere.
