Snow! But how much?

Thursday, January 16, 2003

Brittany Inman cleans the snow off the family car this morning so her mother could drive her to school. The North Clay Middle School 7th grader didn't know if school would stay in session all day due to the weather but she was going to attempt to get there to start the day. The trip was probably long and slow because Mechanic Street was like the rest of Clay County this morning -- snow- covered and slippery. Clay County received 1.2 inches of snow by 8 a.m. today, according to Doris Sculley, Indiana Department of Natural Resources district conservationist.

Shoppers found grocery stores full of people Wednesday. Many bought food staples such as milk and bread in anticipation of a winter snow storm that was forecast to bring 2-6 inches of the freezy skid stuff to Clay County.

True to past storms, the majority of the snow was forecast to stay south of the county. The far southern areas of Indiana could receive as much as 9 inches. Meanwhile, Parke County and the northern part of Clay County were expected to receive as little as 2 inches today.

At press time, forecasters believed the snowfall would end by about 6 p.m. today.

The Brazil Times went to press early today to help carriers deliver your newspaper before the storm hit.
