Snow totals from around the county included just under 7 inches in Pocahontas, and just over 7 inches in Mulberry Grove, and multiple reports of 6+ inches were reported from various places in the county. At the sewer plant 8.2 inches were recorded.

Dozens of churches in and around Bond County also cancelled their services and programs Sunday due to the weather. And the slick roads caused multiple accidents. At news time no serious injuries were reported from those accidents according to local police.
The city police responded to two accidents on Saturday and wrote 15 citations for parking in a snow route. When there is two or more inches of snow all vehicles must be removed from snow routes to let the crews plow the roads.
