LawCo. sees early snowfall
Lawrence County received an early snowfall as two-to-three inches of snow fell throughout the county on Monday night.
Snow accumulated quickly on grassy areas, and a slush formed on roadways. According to Lawrence County Dispatch, several cars slid into ditches in the first 30 minutes or so of the snowfall.
Parts of the county experienced power outages due to snow accumulating on trees and power lines. Most customers had their power restored Monday night.
The Hoxie senior high boys basketball game against Corning that was to be played at 6:50 p.m. at Williams Baptist College was cancelled due to the weather, but the remainder of the games were played as scheduled.
All Lawrence County schools were open on Tuesday, and the temperature climbed into the upper 40s to help clear any roads that were still slush covered.
