Marion County sees first snowfall of the winter

The first snow of the winter season, about 4 to 5 inches deep, prompted Ella Unger, 22 months old, to help her father, Matt (kneeling), and uncle Andy Thursday afternoon build a snowman near the intersection of D and Adams streets in Hillsboro. Excited to contribute, Ella patted handfuls of snow on her snowman?s midsection. Earlier, Ella?s mother, Erika, and grandfather Eddie shared in the fun. Matt said this was Ella?s first snowman and she wanted him to welcome everyone to town and have a ?Merry Christmas.?
