Recent mild winter weather came to a close in the Crossroads area Monday evening as a massive winter storm caused temperatures to drop throughout the area.
Residents woke up to a formidable dusting of snow, prompting most public schools to delay classes, then cancel them altogether. Big Spring, Coahoma, Forsan, Grady and Sands school districts all canceled classes, as did Howard College.
Throughout Big Spring, private schools and clinics either delayed opening or decided to remain closed.
With low temperatures dipping well below freezing this week, many area residents will be looking for some extra warmth, a search fire department officials say can turn deadly if precautions aren’t taken.
Big Spring Fire Marshal Carl Condray said there are many different types of secondary heating, ranging from portable electric units to wood-burning stoves, but the most common causes of fires involving them are avoidable.
