Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Lauderdale Emergency Management Agency director David Sharp surveyed the local area and took some snowfall measurements.

Beautiful as it was, there are dangers with the snow.

"So far we haven't had a whole lot other than the occasional vehicle sliding off the road and that kind of stuff," said Sharp. "But there will probably be more wrecks and vehicles sliding off the roads."

As water from melted snow freezes Friday night, roads will be icy, but it won't be obvious.

"You're not going to be able to see that ice. It's just going to be there," Sharp said.

Friday was a good day to stay in and enjoy the snow, if you had the chance. You could have seen an army of snowmen to areas that looked like scenes from the Bavarian Alps.

Road crews did what they could to keep roads open during the day.

"If you have to drive, use extreme caution and allow yourself plenty of extra time," said Sharp. "If you don't have to, then please stay off the roads."

The snow here will be gone almost as fast as it got here. For many of us, it's another memory to add to past snow storms. For others, it may just be the first memory to build on later.

    Stephen, nice job on the viedo. The few snow events we get in Meridian are worth documenting.
