SHEPPARD AIR FORCE BASE, Texas – A winter weather event moved across much of North Texas Feb. 5, 2020, dropping several inches of snow.

While not the 7-9 inches forecast, the accumulation was enough for Sheppard AFB leadership to suspend training Feb. 5 and parts of Feb. 6. The base was back at normal operations by 1 p.m. on Feb. 6.

Mission-essential functions such as security forces, food services, fire, military training leaders, command post and others braved the weather to ensure support functions continued throughout the event.
