The snow ended along with the storm but travel conditions can still be dangerous in the region. Travel is difficult on icy rural roads, after an afternoon warm-up turned snow to slush.

Plows are pushing this heavy, wet snow off roads in Richland County. They're knocking down drifts brought on by blowing snow.

The Richland County Sheriff is asking people to use extreme caution, or stay off the roads until everything's plowed.

Chief Deputy Gary Ruhl – Richland County Sheriff’s Deputy: "Just because it seems like a lull in the action, I talked to our snowplow drivers, and they can deal with a lot of real estate if they don't have to deal with vehicles on the roadway or in the ditch.”

Richland County has more than 10 people out plowing roads. They'll go until seven o'clock.
