from Christmas snow
Windom area residents woke up to one extra gift on Christmas morning--about four inches of snow. The snow began falling around 2 p.m. on Tuesday and gained momentum as the evening wore on. By nightfall, local sidewalks and streets was already starting to get a good blanket of fluffy snow. Many area residents spent Christmas morning opening gifts with the backdrop of the buzz of snow throwers. Conditions were relatively mild on Christmas Day, allowing many area residents to easily travel to and from their destinations. Today's forecast on Citizen Online's Weather Underground link shows clear skies and high temperatures in the upper-20s. Temperatures are expected to hit 37 on Friday and 35 on Saturday. However, it appears a cool-down is on the way. Minus-2 is the predicted high for Sunday.
