Would you believe that this classic carol about a frightful blizzard was written during a summer heat wave? Well, believe it! That’s exactly how “Let It Snow” came to be in July 1945, when musicians Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne were motivated by record high temperatures to write a song that would cool them down.
