COLUMBIA CITY â€“ It was supposed to be rain, but precipitation in Whitley County shortly before 7 a.m. today came in the form of moderately heavy wet snow.
The surprise snow was coating roadways and causing traffic to go no more than 35 mph in places on U.S. 30, extending commute times considerably.
The good news is that warming temperatures should change the snow to rain . . . soon.
