    A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 3 PM CST this
    afternoon.

    A mixture of freezing rain... sleet and snow early this morning will
    turn over to mainly snow and sleet by mid morning. The snow and
    sleet mixture will slowly taper off by mid-afternoon.

    Ice accumulations may reach one tenth to one quarter of an inch...
    with 3 to 5 inches of snow and sleet across most of the warning
    area... with locally higher amounts possible.

    A Winter Storm Warning means significant amounts of snow...
    sleet... and ice are expected or occurring. This will make travel
    very hazardous or impossible.

    Should be a very busy day around here with this wintery mess. I agree with Big Earl, everyone stay safe out there.

    Heard on the radio the local power company, Louisville Gas & Electric is sending several crews to help repair the damage from all the ice.

    pure crap here.
    1" thick ice and takes alot to bust thru just to scrape off.
    Trucker called Monday at 2pm saying he was just leaving from Kansas with load of salt.
    got here at 7pm that night.
    I think we have went thru at least half of 25 tons he brought.

    you just dump it on and then dump more on to try and get thru the stuff.

    and now it is snowing again.
