Most of Ohio has been snow covered but last night the freezing rain and the ice came which added a new challenge for anyone on an Ohio road trying to get home.  I was watching the news and they made the announcement that Knox County Ohio was in a level 2 snow emergency and they were recommending that people should stay off the roads if at all possible.

I am a a big fan of Twitter and I subscribe to the 10TV Columbus News feed on Twitter so I immediately saw that 10TV had posted the school closing announcement for Mount Vernon City Schools the night before. I quickly checked the school website and they had already updated their website and had posted the Wednesday closing announcement.  I have to say I was impressed how fast 10TV and the Mount Vernon Schools made the announcement because this gives parents some advance time to make plans for their children.

I shot this short video this morning on my way to work and thought it might add a little more depth to the this topic if you could actually see the snow.  I want you to pay special attention to the street once I pull out of the driveway because you can't see where the street is and if I hadn't driven this road thousands of times before I might not have made it out of our neighborhood without landing in a ditch.
