MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Residents of central Alabama awoke this
morning to snow falling from Birmingham to Montgomery and into some
southwest Alabama counties.
It was not enough to cause any immediate traffic problems, but children scooped up enough for snowballs to toss in front of the Capitol in Montgomery.
In Montgomery, 11-year-old Khryshanna Taylor saw snow for the first time and was unimpressed by the cold white flakes covering her neighborhood. She says if it snows again, "I'm going to move out of the state!"
The snow began falling shortly after sunrise. Forecasters did not expect this wintry blast to bring strong winds or ice on trees and power lines. But there's a hard freeze warning that will close some roadways Saturday night.
