City crews worked on removing piles of snow in the middle of Hawthorne Street Monday afternoon.

Another wallop of winter

After a glimmer of spring arose last week, it was thoroughly buried under a heavy dose of winter on Sunday.

A slow-but-steady snowfall started Sunday and kept on going.


It wasn't the big flaky stuff - it was more like fine silt - but it gradually built up into one big mess by early Monday morning.

The snowfall totals varied widely, from six inches in Alexandria to eight inches in Carlos, but that fails to capture the extent of the storm.
