INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Jan. 21, 2014) — Snow started falling well before sunrise Tuesday, setting up a potentially difficult morning commute for drivers in central Indiana.

In the middle of a particularly snowy January, commuters braced for the worst.

“It’s pretty, but I’m kind of scared about getting on the interstate,” said Darlene Nelms, who spoke with FOX59 as she filled up her gas tank on Southport Road off I-65.  “I’m not sure how it’s going to be.  I can’t miss work because they hold it against us.”

Chicago resident Nita Patel was driving through central Indiana on her way to Florida for a family commitment.

“It’s so windy and cold.  It’s so bad,” Patel said.  “We have to.  That’s why we’re driving.”

Perhaps Nelms summed up what many Hoosiers were thinking when they saw the one-to-three inches of snow forecasted for the Tuesday morning commute.

“I’m over it.  I want summer to come.  I’m ready for spring.”

Ready, sure, but we’ll all have to wait a little longer.
