December 29, 1966 — A genuine White Christmas, the second in many years, was the big event of Christmas 1966. It started early Christmas Eve and continued until a late hour.
Eight and one half inches of snow glittered and sparkled over the earth and trees bent under the heavy load on Christmas morning. Few were those who braved the highways and streets but highway crews were on the job early and by noon most of the main thoroughfares were open.
Wednesday morning of this week several inches more snow fell and it was expected to turn to rain.
