Area residents woke up this morning to find snow blanketing nearly everything - and was still coming down. The first flake was reported in Sikeston at approximately 1:45 a.m. However, it was reported that the snow did not begin to fall in some areas of the four-county area until later today. In New Madrid, snow began to fall about 6:30 a.m.
