One thing positive about March snowstorms: They normally don't hang around too long.
The seven-inch snowfall which hit Decatur starting Tuesday night was no exception. A bright sun and temperatures around the freezing mark helped melt away a potion of the snow on Wednesday as the city and county quickly returned to normal.
City crews went to work early on Wednesday and by afternoon, most streets were in good condition. The county highway department sent out 14 plows at 6 a.m. on Wednesday and got all roads open. All school systems in the county were operating on normal schedules this morning after all had closed on Wednesday.
