The "S" Word

Yes, snow fell in Alabama on December 1, 2008. Most reports of light accumulation came from North Alabama but there was a report of flakes as far south as Washington County which is near the Mississippi border north of Mobile County.

My sons saw snow at their school in West Point and they had fun getting out and throwing snowballs at their classmates.

Here are some reports from the NWS Huntsville. The links are to photos submitted to ABC 33/40 that were posted on Alabamawx.com.
