A white Christmas on the wish list of many Lawrence County children became a reality as the area was blanketed in 10 to 14 inches of snow on Dec. 25 and 26.

The National Weather Service began issuing warnings several days in advance that conditions were favorable for a major snowstorm to occur across Arkansas.

A storm system bringing rain and freezing rain began moving out of Texas early on Dec. 25. The precipitation changed to snow during the afternoon and evening when cold air began wrapping around the moisture-laden front as it began moving north-northeast across Arkansas. By Christmas night blizzard conditions were stretching from Polk County to Clay County and into Missouri.
