SNOW FUN — Eleven-year-old Alexis Erwin (left) flinched as her sister, 8-year-old Trinity-Faith Kemler, threw a snowball at her Monday afternoon during the city’s second snowfall within just a few days. Monday’s more than five inches of snow proved to be good packing snow and was perfect for snowball fights and making snow sculptures. The girls’ brother, 6-year-old Klayton Kemler (not pictured), also got in on the action. The three are students at Lake Road and are the children of James and Suzie Kemler of Union City. Union City’s A.J. Stub Wastewater plant has recorded 8.4 inches of snowfall since late Thursday evening. Everyone venturing outside is encouraged to bundle up, with the National Weather Service issuing a wind-chill advisory for this area. A strong upper level disturbance was expected through the Mid-South early this morning as arctic air continued to spill into the region. The weather statement said a combination of very cold temperatures and gusty northwest winds will produce wind-chill values of zero to seven below today and eight below tonight. Actual temperatures could be as high as 15 today and as low as 2 tonight. The cold wind chills will cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin and officials are encouraging everyone who goes outside to wear a hat and gloves.
