One of the great activities which goes hand-in-hand with snow is the building of a
snowman. These UNC students added a strange twist to the snowman they built on the
steps of the Student Stores: they had him sitting down. (Staff photo by Tad Stewart)

The white flakes began falling shortly
after noon in Chapel Hill.
A few hours later, traffic was snarled
and students slipped as they walked
between classes. Winter had arrived.
The weather bureau predicted a
four-inch accumulation in Chapel Hill
before the skies were expected to clear
late Friday night.
The local frosting was a part of the
first major storm of the year in North
Carolina. By 5 p.m., the entire state east
of Raleigh had been blanketed with the
stuff, with record accumulations of up to
16 inches in some localities.
The snow closed down Chapel Hill
early for the weekend and made the roads
a dangerous, icy trap.
More than 20 automobile accidents
had been reported to the Chapel Hill
police by 4 p.m. None were serious
accidents involving major personal injury.
But an accident at Mason Farm Road and
15-501 By-pass temporarily closed the
by-pass while one man was freed from the
wreckage of his car. He was not injured,
Numerous departmental and
University offices closed early to allow
their employes to get home before the
storm's effect worsened. The Chapel Hill
city schools closed an hour early to avoid
problems returning home.
