A rainfall that lasted nearly all day on Saturday, and which continued throughout Saturday evening, changed to snow about midnight, and nearly everybody was much surprised on Sunday morning to see the ground covered with six or seven inches of snow, and a snowstorm as nearly like a blizzard as anything that comes in these parts. Several telephones poles were broken down from the weight of the snow, and electric wires were down in some parts of the village.
