Slow Going On Some Area Roads

It's kind of crazy out there on the roads folks. I didn't have any trouble getting to work, but my route is mostly on I90, which was pretty easy going. Ryan in our office got in just before 10 a.m. from a meeting and said that he had no problems getting around either, that Kootenai County has less snow than Spokane, but the wind is blowing more. He also said that the Coeur d'Alene Airport offices are closed due to drifting snow. The freeway was moving pretty smoothly he said, except for in areas where it was slowed down by plows.

It's not all smooth going out there though. Here's the Spokesman-Review's roundup of closed roads, wrecks and other concerns.

And here is the Coeur d'Alene Press' overview of things.
