No official measurement, but we are calling it 12 inches of snow in less than 24 hours, at least in some areas of Haleyville. The February 25 snow has to be the second deepist overnight snowfall recorded since February 14, 1958. Unlike the snow of 58, this year's snow did not have devastating ice to take down power and communication lines. The sun came out Thursday morning and melted away a great deal of the snow. Many roads became passable. However, with the overnight temperature going below freezing tonight, 19, there is a ood chance of ice foming from the melting snow. Some roads will become impassable overnight and tomorrow morning from ice. Use extreme caustion for ice on the highways, and even your drive and sidewalks. In light of the forecast icy conditions:
