...ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...

In 1979, an ice storm continued during the early morning hours
across Sherman County, Kansas. Around 3:30 AM, a commercial
television tower in Goodland became so heavy with ice that it
collapsed. The ice changed to snow during the day. Almost five
inches of snow delayed repairs to the tower, leaving many residents
without television reception of any kind for several days.
