March snows set record
The state Climate Extremes Committee recently declared that 26 inches of snow recorded by National Weather Service observing sites at Woodward and Freedom during the March 27-28 blizzard sets a state record for a 24-hour snowfall. The storm system contained heavy snow bands and significant convective activity that included hail and thunder snow in places, said an Oklahoma Climatological Survey official. The former state record was 23 inches at Buffalo on Feb. 21, 1971.

Town delays water project
Cache officials are putting an indefinite hold on upgrades to the city’s water service. Mayor Shawn Komacheet says the water at two test wells drilled earlier this year is not fit for drinking. He says the city will look for other options for expanding its water system. The engineer of the $2 million project told the city council in October that high levels of fluoride were found in the water and that it would not be usable unless treated. The engineer said the city could abandon the test wells and the project for about $38,400.
