NEW ORLEANS -- Louisiana got its earliest snowflakes ever as people across the South awakened to a dusting of powder.

Snow also started falling Saturday at Washington's Dulles International Airport, causing a few cancellations. The White House also got a light coating of the white stuff.

The National Weather Service says several southwestern Louisiana towns reported two to three inches of snow. Photos posted online showed clumps of snow on otherwise brown yards, though many people scraped together enough for snowmen.

The storm also dumped three to four inches of snow in parts of Mississippi. Tennessee and North Carolina reported light snow at higher elevations.

In northern Georgia, National Weather Service meteorologist Trisha Palmer said the light snowfall was "not that big of a deal."
