Snow and ice descended on the area over the weekend causing a challenge for the ducks at Reeve Lake. Friday evening Friona received a layer of sleet which was then covered by 6-inches of gently falling wet snow and freezing rain on trees. There was virtually no wind accompanying the snow, leaving a white blanket on everything in the area. There was a warmup Monday and Tuesday but temps plunged again Wednesday.
