First Snow Leaves White Blanket, Cold Remains

Traffic problems were avoided for the most part on Tuesday, but an icing on Sunday night did cause a few wrecks. While the snow got many Rocklanders even more into the holiday season spirit, a cold front leaving high temperatures in the 20s for much of the week is sure to be less popular.
