Late hit: Snow falls as April wanes

Wet snow Thursday covers portions of "Reaching for the Stars," the sculpture by local art teacher Robert Orr fronting Willmar Senior High School.

The work was inspired by astronaut George "Pinky" Nelson, a 1968 graduate.

The snow coated windshields and turned plowed fields to black before dissolving.

The weather should be better Friday for the Grand March at the junior-senior prom.
