Last weekend’s snowstorm moved mostly north of Lancaster County, leaving us with a dusting of snow and a bit of ice, followed by bitter cold.
Parts of the Upstate and most of North Carolina got heavy snow, but Lancaster got only flurries that began around 9:30 a.m. Saturday and continued until about 11 a.m. The clouds then cleared, and the sun was shining through ice on the trees by mid-afternoon.
Snow and freezing rain caused just 34 customers in the county to lose power Saturday, said Rick Jiran, Duke Energy’s vice president for community relations.

Believers in Christ should consider the life of Daniel. Taken captive to Babylon by King Nebuchadnezzar, he and his three friends were chosen to learn the Babylonian culture and language so they could serve at the royal court.
But when Nebuchadnezzar ordered they be given the royal food and drink, Daniel asked they might be granted an exemption. He knew that the king’s food had been offered first to idols, and that some of it violated their strict Mosaic food laws.
This is in response to Carl Miles’ Jan. 11 letter “Prayer for our law enforcement officers.”
Thank you so much, Carl, for dedicating your prayer to the memory of my son, Deputy James Brent McCants.
You said you wanted your legacy to be protecting our law enforcement officers. The moment you wrote that letter, your legacy went out around the world.
God hears you and all the other men and women praying. Prayer works. And you will save someone’s life.
God bless you, Carl.
