'Once in a Lifetime': Texas Family Plays Hockey on Icy Road

A family played hockey on an ice-covered road in Van, Texas, after temperatures plummeted in the state on Monday, February 15.

Video shared by Clyde L Hays shows four of his children playing ice hockey on a road outside their house, which he called a “once in a lifetime” experience.

The National Weather Service reported extremely cold temperatures as low as -19 F in parts of northeast Texas on February 15.

The NWS issued a wind chill warning for much of the state, warning of cold and icy conditions that could prove “life-threatening” to people “without adequate warmth or shelter.” This was the first warning of this type ever issued by the Fort Worth division, they said.
