WHITLEY COUNTY — One week after Winter Storm Ion hit Whitley County — dumping more than 16 inches of snow on streets and roadways and closing schools across Northeast Indiana — the work and school week returned to normal Monday.

Columbia City’s Street Department put the finishing touches on downtown snow removal Friday, using dump trucks to haul away excess snow to fully reopen parking in the city. County highway trucks continued to open the more than 600 miles of country roads, and state highway crews worked to remove ice from U.S. 30 and state highways.

Many Whitley County residents applauded the hard work of the crews on The Post & Mail’s Facebook page.
