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.

Area law enforcement and emergency services were busy with an acceleration of traffic mishaps while city and highway department workers were laboring to make roads more safe.

According to officials with the National Weather Service in Midland, low temperatures in the Big Spring area dropped to the mid-teens Monday night, a huge contrast to the warmer temperatures enjoyed during the weekend.
