Let It Snow! Let It Snow! (With Photo Gallery)

December 8, 2010

(Updated 12:30 p.m.) Snow flurries were reported across the North Escambia area this morning, incluing Atmore, Walnut Hill, Bratt, Flomaton, Byrneville, Century, Brewton, Lambeth, Little River,  Poarch and Huxford.

“I have field of flurries!” a reader on Carver Avenue in Atmore wrote.

Students at many area schools were allowed to go outside and experience the snow, including some students at Bratt Elementary, Byrneville Elementary and Northview High School.

There was no significant accumulation from the flurries; however a very, very small amount to snow accumulated briefly on vehicles, decks and even livestock (see the photo below).

If you have snow photos, email them to — news@northescambia.com and we’ll add them to our photo gallery.
