A mix of sleet, freezing rain, even some light snow began falling early Friday morning, prompting many area school corporations to either delay the start of classes, or close for the day. In many cases, schools that announced delays, later changed course and announced that classes were canceled.
Area law enforcement agencies have also been busy, responding to a number of weather related accidents. Indiana State Police reported several slide-offs in the Gibson and Knox County areas. In Kentucky, an accident on the Western Kentucky Parkway slowed traffic during the morning commute. Other trouble spots have been reported in Hopkins Ohio and Muhlenberg Counties.
