Many people are still shoveling sidewalks and digging out their cars after this weekend's snow storm. On Saturday and Sunday, up to 14 and a half inches of snow fell in the Quad Cities area. Meteorologist Tim Gross, from the National Weather Service in Davenport, says on Saturday, the storm started as rain and then turned to snow as cold air blew in. Yesterday (sun), Moline received record-breaking rainfall of over one inch, beating the old record set in 1915. Early Sunday morning, Gross says the rain turned to heavy, wet snow.
