Snow brings school closings, traffic delays

Posted: Updated:

Louisville, KY -- (WDRB) -- Snow brought traffic problems and school closings early Wednesday.  Up to two inches of snow was on the ground in Louisville through through the morning commute.

Jefferson County Public Schools, along with schools in Hardin, Larue, Meade, Bullitt, and Oldham counties, and many other districts south of Louisville closed.  Several schools in southern Indiana were on a delayed schedule, including New Albany/Floyd County and Greater Clark.

Police across the region were called to dozens of minor wrecks and reports of cars sliding off the road.  Louisville Metro dispatch says the Gene Snyder Expressway and parts of Interstate 65 have been particularly hazardous.

In Elizabethtown, one resident, Zorro Wilson, told Fox 41's Lindsay Allen he enjoys the snow:  "Com'on with it...I like it."  He makes a little extra money shoveling snow.

Many of the main roads in Elizabethtown and elsewhere were in good shape by midday Wednesday.  Secondary roads, though, often hadn't been touched.  Some drivers, wary of slippery roads, had weighed down their cars with sandbags.  Elizabethtown resident Vicki Huddleston says cautious driving helps:  "We just don't get close to anybody.  We just make sure everybody's staying out of the way."  She adds, "I'm ready for 95 degrees."
