Once Slushy Roads Much Improved.

(La Porte County, IN) - Drive carefully was the advice this morning because of a mixture of freezing precipitation overnight.  State highways are mostly wet while other roads were slushy especially in the rural areas of La Porte County until the plows got out and the temperatures began rising above freezing. 


An inch or two of snow came down last evening followed by freezing rain.  It was all rain this morning.  La Porte County Highway Department Superintendent Duane Werner said all that was left to do this afternoon for his snow plows drivers was pretty much clearing slush from subdivisions.


People on foot this morning also had to be careful with ice on many sidewalks and other hard surfaces.


Werner said conditions are much improved now that plows have blanketed the county and temperatures were approaching 40 degrees early in the afternoon.
