Another slick day of driving in southwestern Ohio

Liberty Township on Princeton Road

Here’s hoping that everyone who lives in my neck of the woods, from Dayton to Cincinnati Ohio,  made it home safely?  The roadways on Tuesday afternoon were about as slick as they can get without being sheets of ice. That was evident by the very slow going and significant number of vehicle either in the ditch or playing bumper cars. I took a couple photos on my aging Palm Treo 700p and will include here. (if you can’t tell, I’m angling for a new smartphone — maybe the Palm Pre)

SW OH snowy and slick roads


  • Hmm … Liberty Township (photos above) is out of salt!
    … and are now at a Level 2:

    There are three levels of snow emergency classifications:

    LEVEL 1: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads may also be icy. Drive carefully.

    LEVEL 2: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be out on the roads. Contact your employer to see if you should report to work.

    LEVEL 3: All roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. No one else should be out during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary to travel or a personal emergency exists. All employees should contact their employer to see if they should report to work. Those traveling on the roads may subject themselves to arrest.

  • Thanks for the photos just down from my house! I was glad I wasn’t out driving.

    You should post the photo showing the snow falling down like you did at the treo site.
