WINONA, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

It wasn't exactly a winter wonderland in Winona. The promising winter weather system didn't live up to expectations.

"Just started to mist snow, then at 6, or 7 it started snowing pretty good," said Winona resident Danny Banks. "Then about an hour or so then it quit."

Most of Montgomery County got a light dusting, but that was it.

"It was snowing, it kind of looked like powdered sugar had dusted everybody and everything," said Michellee Carollo.

The snow was not enough to close the schools. Roads were also in good shape, allowing businesses to open.

The only real effect from the winter weather was the cold, bitter cold. Temperatures hovered around freezing for much of the day.

Michell Carollo said, 
"I do not like the cold," added Carollo. "If it's gonna be cold it needs to snow so I can get in it and play."
