Drifting Snow Still a Problem Across Michiana

The sun is shining today across Michiana after as much as a foot of snow fell in some areas.

For the first time this winter, the farther south you go in the area, the more snow you'll see.

Fulton County is still in a Snow Emergency, as crews clean rural roads of drifts that are several feet deep.

Most schools in Michiana decided to call off classes on this Valentine's Day because of the weather.

The slick and snow covered roads are also causing problems for people delivering Valentine's Day flowers and sweets.

So what should you expect if you're headed out today? Most main roads are now in pretty good shape, except in areas where drifting has piled up.

Back roads are a different story; some are still deep in snow as crews work to dig them out.

The best advice is the same driving advice you always hear during wintry weather: give yourself a lot of extra time to get where you need to go.

StormTeam 16 has crews out in the snow across the area. Coming up on the air on NewsCenter 16 you'll hear from people dealing with snowdrifts that have swallowed cars and blocked off streets.

We'll also go for a ride with a South Bend plow crew, to see just how tough that job is after snow drifts across roads.

StormTeam 16 is also in Fulton County today, where the first big snowstorm of the season is one people will remember for some time.

Finally, we're not alone in this winter mess. The storm system stretched for hundreds of miles, and has made getting around miserable for millions. We'll take you around the Midwest and Northeast to see just how bad the storm was for other areas.
