    Driving to Frankfort from Whitestown. Blowing and drifting roads, snow seems to be falling at a good clip. Loos to be more than an inch. Hard to tell. Within a few hours from midnight to 2am. Drifts around and in front of my car to 6 or so inches. Be careful out there…..

  3. ML in Rochester says:

    There is at least one inch of snow in Rochester. It is a wet, heavy snow.

  4. ML in Rochester says:

    Rochester now has approx. three inches of snow. SR 25 south is very bad with falling, blowing,and drifting snow. Once I came to the Cass County line and farther south, road conditions improved!!!!

  5. Doug in Flora says:

    About one inch so far, here. Wind still incredibly strong. Temp is 29.8…
