City and county crews are gearing up to prepare for what could be the worst snow storm since 1988, according to the National Weather Service..
Snow is expected to move into the area around Sunday afternoon, with it getting increasingly heavy after 6 p.m., said meteorologist Ryan Husted with the National Weather Service. About 3 to 5 inches of snow are expected, however, Husted said if snow bands settle on top of Oxford, more than 6 inches could fall in the LOU area. (January 7, 2011, Page 1A)
