        Officials: Stay off roads

        So far this year, Oxford has seen its fourth snowiest winter ever, according to Marlene Mickelson, hydrometeorological technician with the NWS. The record is 20 inches of snow from December to February in 1985-86.

        Wednesday’s 5 inches of snow shut down schools in Oxford and Lafayette County. Freezing temperatures caused roads to be covered in ice. Officials don’t expect the roads to improve much throughout the day. (February 10, 2011, Page 1)
