Only the older Analog type televisions get snow from lack of signal. The modern Digital TV gets pixilated. like missing pieces.
And on re-reading the title of your question, it does say CRT...... As in Cathode Ray Tube. (I thought they were all gone now, all around the world) Anyhow.... has your country switched off it's analog tv transmissions. This would give you snow. Because there is no Transmission. Seems unlikely they would stop transmission in the middle of what your watching.
So
Do you have a Digital Set Top Box feeding the TV? This would pick up Digital TV transmissions and convert them to your old CRT TV Screen. Knowing this should help you diagnose the problem.
Check the antenna input to your digital box and connections from the STB to your TV. They probably use a Yellow video cable and a Red & White (Sound Left & Right). You didn't mention if sound was still there?
Perhaps someone has pressed the remote control and the TV has jumped to one of the Antenna Channel inputs rather than the Video input (Yellow Video input)?
Might be that Simple.....
Good Luck
