MUCH OF EASTER SNOW MELTS TODAY, WARMER

MUCH OF THE THREE OR FOUR INCH SNOW THAT FELL HERE EARLY EASTER MORNING HAD MELTED TODAY UNDER WARMER TEMPERATURES. RAIN, SNOW HAD SLEET FELL SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING TO GIVE THIS AREA A WHITE COAT SUNDAY MORNING. MANY PERSONS DELAYED THEIR " EASTER PARADE " OF NEW FROCKS UNTIL A LATER DATE BUT A FEW DONNED THEIRS YESTERDAY AFTERNOON FOR BRIEF STROLLS. THE MERCURY DROPPED TO 20 YESTERDAY MORNING AT SEVEN O'CLOCK .

IT WAS THE COLDEST EASTER IN THE MEMORY OF MANY RESIDENTS OF THE CITY. SPECIAL EASTER SERVICES WERE GIVEN AT THE LOCAL CHURCHES SUNDAY.

A LOW OF 19 ABOVE WAS RECORDED HERE AT SIX O'CLOCK THIS MORNING.

FUTURE GENERATIONS TO SHOOT AT . THE SEVERE SLEET AND RAIN STORM PRACTICALLY ALL OF SATURDAY NIGHT, WAS FOLLOWED EARLY EASTER MORNING BY A SEMI - FREEZING MIST, WHEN THESE SNAPS WERE MADE.
