TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Wednesday's snowfall in Tallahassee was a record breaking one.
It was the first measurable snowfall in Tallahassee in 28 years, topping out at one-tenth of an inch.
The freezing rain and snow prompted Leon County to send out a fleet to spread out 91,000 pounds of sand on 36 roads, bridges and overpasses.
The City of Tallahassee spread 260,000 pounds of sand at 19 locations, and said at its peak, used 545 mega watts to help keep people warm; nearly twice what it was this time last year.
