WINTER'S LAST BLOW?: Whitley Co. residents aren’t so optimistic

March 13, 2014

Crews from the Indiana Department of Transportation were doing more than clearing highways in the wake of Wednesday’s winter storm. Due to strong winds, snow and ice coated traffic lights, keeping drivers from being able to determine which light was signaling to stop or go.

COLUMBIA CITY — After a brief warm up to start the week, Northeast Indiana received another 7 inches of snow Wednesday morning, sending snow plows back to the roads, closing schools — again — and causing several slide-offs and crashes.

The first day of spring is a week from today, but many local residents aren’t optimistic that the snow is over.

“Winter says, ‘I have not yet begun to fight,’” Craig Myers posted on The Post & Mail’s Facebook page.

Forecasters predict another weather system may make its way to the area next week, but for now, residents are dealing with sub-zero temperatures, yet again.
