Is this really mid-November?

Brrr! Can this really be November?

Record-breaking snow and bone-chilling temperatures hit Jen­nings County this week as an Arctic cold front plowed through the region along with the middle and eastern part of the country.

What makes the frigid blast so unusual is it came so early in the year, over two weeks before Thanksgiving, the holiday that usually signals the end of the fall season. Leaves are still on some trees in the county, but many were knocked off by the snow that fell starting Monday afternoon and continuing into early Tuesday as the thermometer plummeted.

"Road conditions are good in some places, not so good in others," reported Jim Reeves, Jennings County Highway Depart­ment superintendent on Tuesday. "The snow accumulated throughout the county but spotty, a bit deeper in some areas than others."
