UPDATED: 7:15 p.m. New Haven, Mo. - (By Kyle Quick) Before showing you where this unexpected snow came from, QNN would like to commend New Haven’s street’s department and the remarkable job they do of snow removal particularly compared to other small towns.

We felt it important to acknowledge their dedicated employees and the great job they do.

Heavy snow continues to fall after a small system moved across the area earlier this evening, dropping an estimated 1 to 2 inches of snow in about 90 minutes as road conditions quickly deteriorated.
