From Tuesday afternoon to about 11 p.m. more than 4 inches of snow fell in Pratt County, and residents spend Wednesday cleaning up, or playing in the remains.

A blanket of snow fell in the Pratt area Tuesday af- ternoon and evening, with depths ranging from two inches to four inches by the time it was done at 11 p.m. Total inches increased as the storm system moved eastward, according to Greg Tatro, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Dodge City.

Tatro said six to eight inches of snow fell in the general area around Cun- ningham and Penalosa, with a report of 10 inches recorded eight miles south of Kingman.

There was no measura- ble wind so drifting snow was not a problem in Pratt.

No ice problems were reported to the National Weather Service and tem- peratures were predicted to be well above freezing for the next few days, enabling a quick melt before a new system moves in for the weekend.

Pratt road and street crews were busy all night Tuesday and Wednesday during the day removing
