Not everyone was happy to see snow in San Antonio

Winter weather wasn't as much fun for people who had to work in the snow.

SAN ANTONIO - Most of us were busy taking photos and building snowmen Thursday night. But winter weather wasn't so fun for some people who had to work in the snow.

Drivers moved slowly as the constant stream of powder hit their windshields last night on San Antonio highways.

It was a mess on Loop 410 Friday morning after multiple cars collided on the exit ramp to Jackson Keller.

CPS Energy says 88,000 customers were without power late in the evening as snow began piling up. Most had power restored Friday morning.

San Antonio firefighters also stayed busy. Between 7 pm and 11 pm Thursday, SAFD responded to 19 fire alarms, 102 power line issues, 5 electrical fires, and 2 structure fires.

An SAFD spokesperson said 20-30 calls were handled for fires due to power lines.

Officials say a man died in an apartment fire on the city's southwest side. his identity was still pending Friday afternoon at the Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office. The cause of that fire is still unknown.

Bexar County school districts saw a drop in attendance due to the snow.

Northside ISD says almost 17-percent of its students didn't show up Friday. This same day last year, only about 5-percent of Northside ISD students were out.

North East ISD reported approximately 15-percent of its students missed school Friday. NEISD usually only sees about 4-percent of students absent on a daily basis.

SAISD had an absence rate of 20 percent today.
