DALLAS (AP) — Some West Texas school districts canceled classes because of snow and icy conditions making travel dangerous.
The National Weather Service said snow fell Dec. 5 in Abilene, Amarillo, Gainesville, Decatur, Lubbock and the Odessa area. The Odessa-based Ector County Independent School District and the Midland ISD called off school for the day.
Crews from electric provider Oncor worked to restore power to about 1,600 residential and business customers still without electricity Dec. 5, mainly in West Texas.
