but the snow closed many Lancaster Coun
ty schools and blocked several rural roads.
More Snow
Is Expected
Over County
Prospects that Lancaster Coun
ty will have more snow seem
evident with a storm brewing on
the west Gulf Coast, according
to the U S Weather Bureau of
fice m Lancaster. It could be
that several inches of snow may
fall, to add to two weeks of win
try weather that has put records
on pretty much a normal basis.
In Lancaster last week, -6 of
an inch of moisture resulted from
the Farm Show opening ice
storm, and other parts of the
County reported a needed -6 to .7
Of an inch. Snows Monday night
clogged several Southern Lancas
ter County roads and forced one
day school holidays at Quar
ryville and Strasburg, as well as
elementary 1 schools in Martic and
Pequea Townships.
The Monday night snow net
ted as much as five inches in
parts of Southern Lancaster
County. Safe Harbor recorded
three, Holtwood 3%. Drifts were
common, driving was hazardous,
but cinder trucks and plows were
on the job early.
