The weather out there is getting pretty bad. Many of you traveling the roads are having a tough time navigating through not only this fresh snow, but the snow from earlier this week too.
The snow took a little while to get here, but by mid afternoon, the snow was falling and people out on the roads were sliding. Emergency officials have had their hands full responding to fender benders and cars stuck in ditches.
It seems like this winter weather won't let up. Temperatures have been in the teens and the single digits. Wind chills have gone below zero. Earlier this week, our region was pounded with snow. Saturday, Old Man Winter picked up again where he left off.
"The Storm System we've been using for Saturday says we've seen about 1-3 inches of snow and higher levels in the mountains. Our Storm System pretty much all winter has been coming from the Great Lakes region: Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. They've been dropping in here pretty quickly," said 5 News meteorologist, Tom Kippen.
One man said this is one of the worst winters he can remember. He said while the snow isn't that unusual, it's these cold, cold temperatures that's making things almost unbearable.
"I like the snow, but I hate the cold. The cold is the worst part," said Seth Davis, a Harrison County resident.
More cold weather is headed our way.
"We've been seeing a few nights already below zero. At least two to three more nights coming up this week. It's kind of unusual having this many below zeros lows in a stretch like this," said Kippen.
It seems this weather just won't let up.
"It's not going to let up. It looks like maybe next weekend we could see a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel, but don't expect 50 degrees and sunny," said Kippen.
One man said his family's been having a hard time getting where they need to be with all this snow. Several accidents have already been reported from today's snowfall.
"It's been bad so far. It's been really cold lately. Getting to work is worse than anything. I can't wait until spring," said Mark Gregory, a Harrison County resident.
