Getting back to normal as records fall
Decatur and area residents were mostly back to normal today after a record-breaking snowstorm which began late on the fourth full day of spring.
Officials at the Decatur weather station said this morning that the city received a total of six inches of snow. The snow was so wet and heavy, they said, that it sank as it hit the ground, making an accurate measurement difficult, so the total could have been a little higher.
Also, the officials noted, it appeared that the south side of the city received more snow than the north side. The weather station is on the north edge of the city.
