WELL WHAT IS USUALLY ONE OF THE HEAVIEST SNOW MONTHS TURNED OUT TO BE THE 
LIGHTEST OF THE SEASON SO FAR WITH ONLY 7.8 INCHES. ALONG WITH THE LIGHT 
SNOWFALL WE ALSO HAD A VERY LIGHT RAINFALL AMOUNT WITH OVER HALF THE MONTH 
WITHOUT ANY PRECIPITATION AT ALL.THERE WERE ONLY TWO MAJOR WIND EVENTS ON THE 
TENTH AND ON THE TWENTY-FOURTH, WITH THE HIGHEST WIND HITTING US ON THE TENTH AT 
54 MPH OUT OF THE SOUTHEAST.  THE TEMPERATURES REPEATEDLY HIT IN THE 40\'S THAT 
AND THE CLEAR SKIES MANY PEOPLE THOUGHT THAT SPRING HAD HIT EARLY.
