Roads openend in Panhandle, NW Oklahoma
   OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Roads have reopened in the Panhandle and northwestern Oklahoma where up a spring snowstorm dumped up to 25 inches of snow in some areas.
   Oklahoma Department of Transportation spokeswoman Susan Allison says road clearing crews from around the state that were sent to the region Saturday are heading home today.
   The snow caused roofs to collapse in Custer, Harper, Texas and Woodward counties. Thirty-eight residents of a nursing home in Buffalo were moved to a nearby hospital because part of the roof caved in.
   Schools in Fort Supply and Tyrone also had roofs to collapse
