Chad Roberts/Viral Snow Photo

Local college student Chad Roberts took a photo of himself riding his horse in the snow storm last weekend that went viral on Facebook.

When Chad Roberts took a photo of himself riding a horse in the East Texas snow storm last weekend, he had no idea it would be seen by thousands online soon after.

“It wasn’t for anyone else,” Roberts said. “My intent wasn’t to share it at that particular moment. I just thought it would be cool. It’s snowing in Texas. It stuck long enough to take pictures. And who gets to say they rode their horse in the snow?”
