1941, 75 Years Ago: "Although some of the less traveled rural roads are said to be treacherous due to drifts, the roads in the DeKalb area are not blocked by snow. It was reported at noon today. The rural mail carriers working out of DeKalb were able to cover their routes, although they were some delayed by the snow without having much trouble."
