FLASHBACK to DECEMBER 14, 1997: Central Mississippi gets its heaviest snowfall since 1982. It was a rare chance for kids and everyone else to get outside and play in something we usually have to drive north to find.

It wasn't fun for everyone, however. Flights at the Jackson airport were delayed as crews de-iced their wings. Nearly five inches of snow covered the runways.

We've had heavier snows since then -- most notably, in February 2010, when central Mississippi had its heaviest snowfall in half a century.
