Another Light Snowfall and A Traffic Death

The forecast on Monday afternoon was calling for just a few flurries and snow showers overnight. Accumulation was rated at a dusting to one-half inch of snow. By late evening though, the NWS changed the forecast and was predicting 1-2 inches overnight. The forecast came true with about 1.5 inches falling. This didn't cause many problems, but roads were slippery causing everyone to slow down. I say it didn't cause any problems, but there was one death this morning due to the slippery conditions. A Connersville, Indiana man was killed when he lost control of his car and spun into the path of an oncoming semi. This accident occurred around 5:45 this morning on Bunker Hill along State Road 44 in Fayette county. Here is a link to a Connersville News-Examiner story regarding the accident.
The photo above was taken this morning around 7:50am from the window of my classroom. The snow had begun to taper off at this point. Several buses were late, but no slide offs or accidents involving school buses were reported.
