First snow of 2014


A Bellefontaine street department truck plows west Sandusky Avenue approaching Main Street today. Morning snow made for a hazardous commute. Snow is forecast to taper off, but will be replaced by plummeting temperatures and dangerous wind chills. Drifting snow will also be a concern. Logan County Sheriff Andrew J. Smith issued a Level 1 snow emergency about 7:45 a.m. today. Logan County schools were not in session today because of Christmas break. Triad Schools were to return to classes today, but canceled because of the weather.


Motorists cautiously navigate the intersection of Main Street and Sandusky Avenue today. Snow-covered roads this morning made for a hazardous morning commute.
