*Note: There is a discrepancy concerning the snow depths on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in Roswell. I was told that the FAA Weather Observer who measured the snow depth at the time in 1997 measured it on the runway instead of on the bare ground. The public reported the snow depth in the city to be as high as 26" not including drifts which were higher. I was in Roswell two days after the storm and most places I stopped and measured the snow depth at had 18" to 24".
