Winter Weather – 9 am Notes

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

Sydney and Mallory Fallon found enough snow to make a snowman!

At 10 pm, multiple weather sources forecast 1-3 inches of snow for Drew County, overnight.

However, even though snow was reported from all around the county, it seems only  a “dusting” took place; mostly between 8:30 and 10:00 o’clock.

Drew County Department of Human Services will be under the inclement weather policy, Wednesday.
