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.

"We were pretty fortunate that motorists were careful while navigating through state and borough streets," he said.
