A quick shot of heavy snow took aim on Thanksgiving Eve shoppers in southern Illinois leaving a quick inch of snow in the hours just before sunset on Wednesday. The storm started as rain mid-afternoon and went from drops with slushy centers to large flakes that came down hard and heavy for a brief bit of time. Snow had trouble sticking initially, but as the evening wore on, those flakes accumulated up to an inch along IL Route 13.
