Many counties north of Indianapolis received more than six inches of snow Tuesday into Wednesday.
This system could have been the last snowfall of the season. It started snowing in Delaware county around 2 p.m. on Tuesday. It stopped snowing around 4 a.m. Wednesday morning.
“The timing of this storm helped us and the crews quite a bit. (It helped because it) allowed the road crews to get out without any traffic,” said Tim Osbourne, Delaware County Emergency Management Deputy Director.
Across the county, state highways appeared to have been cleared Wednesday afternoon. County roads had many slick spots and secondary roads were slushy. Roads in the city of Muncie did not have any problems because of the snow.
Delaware County EMA Director Jason Rogers said there weren’t any major incidents. He said drivers reported one big problem. People were not driving carefully around plows. Wednesday morning, a plow driver tried to avoid a car, but hit a telephone pole. The telephone pole was replaced. The driver was okay.
“I would anticipate in the next 24-hours that we’ll be business as normal,” Rogers said.
Rogers said people need to remember to drive carefully.
“Everybody’s ready for Spring and we’re all in a hurry to try to get to work or get from work and this last little bit of snow and ice certainly caused some problems,” Rogers said.
