It could have been worse. That’s the assessment area officials are making today in the wake of back-to-back winter storms that dumped rain, sleet and snow on Lincoln Parish.
“It was nothing like we could have had, had this been an ice event,” Parish Administrator Courtney Hall said.
Despite spotted power outages across the parish and city, and numerous weather-related vehicle incidents, officials said the parish fared well through Winter Storms Quantam and Remus.

021115 Heels of Success C.jpg

While some students dream of producing their own designer sweatshirts, Tevin Curley and Michael Perkins entered the TOP DAWG Idea Pitch competition with only 10 minutes to spare.
With hopes to go into business with their new and unique product, the team created a detach- able heel clip, which is designed to be a cushion for the back of the shoe to protect the ankle.
Curley said he and his teammate grabbed a flyer the day of deadline and turned in their idea with 10 minutes to spare, but they knew they had entered the perfect idea.

Instead of flying to El Paso Wednesday morning as originally scheduled, Tyler Summitt and the Louisiana Tech Lady Techster basketball team practiced at Scotty Robertson Memorial Gym for two hours.
Summitt and Co. were scheduled to fly out of Monroe mid-morning but due to the winter weather that blanketed east Texas and north Louisiana, flights were cancelled.
The travel issues forced Tech, Conference USA, UTEP and UTSA officials to work together to figure out alternate plans with the Lady Techsters now forced to attempt to get to Dallas and fly out late Thursday morning.

It took 22 years, seven months and 23 days to see my first winter wonderland.
Before yesterday, I never once built a snowman, made a snowangel or caught a snowflake on the tip of my tongue.
Now, I have seen snow before, but it either melted before it hit the ground or did not snow enough to build up on the ground.
But when I saw it for the first time yesterday, it was the grandest thing I have seen in a long time.
Miles upon miles of white powder covered the area. From city hall, to the quad of Louisiana Tech University and my front lawn, snow was building everywhere.

Winter Storm Remus pushed its way into Lincoln Parish early this morning holding the area in an icy grip for the third day.
Though some government offices reopened, schools remained closed and officials across the parish kept a watch on the skies.
The parish is under a winter storm watch until 6 p.m. National Weather Service forecasts predict rain, sleet and snow to continue to fall throughout the day with snow accumulations north and south of the I-20 corridor to hit between one and four inches — all on top the slush that remains from Winter Storm Quantam.
