Snow Is Fun For Most Everyone

One of the many snowmen around town. This one on Wood Street.

Traffic moved slowly downtown as heavy snow fell around 8:30 Sunday night.

Icicles adorned the lights in Railroad Park Sunday night.

Downtown looks like a picture postcard in this art image by local photographer Micah Mitchell.

Some of the employees of Mechanics Bank were among the many Yalobusha folks enjoying the four to five inches of snow that piled up overnight Sunday. The male employees backed off when the snow started flying.

Blackmur Drive hill looked slippery Monday morning.

Dan Dickerson and his daughter, Sara Beth, made an Indian snowman on Monday. The snowman matched the life-sized tee pee that Dan had made for Christmas.

Monday was a snow day for many folks who could not get to work. Ironically the ice-covered roads did not keep most folks from having fun. Four-wheelers were a favored method of transportation.

Main Street traffic moved slowly Monday morning in the four to five inches of snow which accumulated overnight. The traffic plus temperatures that remained above freezing eliminated much of the frozen precipitation.

The weather made some folks long for the warm days of the Farmers Market.

We hope you enjoyed this look at the weekend snow. Do you have any photos that you would like to submit? Feel free to send one or two to jackgurner@yahoo.com. We’ll upload them to this site.
