PUNXSUTAWNEY — If you are a fan of a "White Christmas," then you should be happy with the pretty flakes that fell Christmas Eve throughout the area, but very few people wish for a white day after Christmas.

"We had over seven inches of snow on the ground in Punxsutawney Borough as of 5:30 p.m. today (Wednesday)," said Charlie Hoeh, Punxsutawney Borough Emergency Management coordinator.

Hoeh said the forecast called for another three to four inches throughout the night.
