While the snow did not stick to the roads on Campbell and Scott Counties Wednesday afternoon, drivers report they did have to work with low visibility.

"I think it was milemarker 131 where it became a little foggy and the snow was coming down a little bit more," said driver Cindi Forbey of Huntsville "There may be some black ice around this area tonight, I think."

While the midwest and northeast saw snarling traffic from the massive snowstorm, only the northern Channel 10 viewing area saw some of its effects.

"It ain't bad... ain't too icy right now," said driver Dave Ferraza, who was heading to Oneida Wednesday.

"It's taking more to your clothing than it is on the ground!" his wife, Marlana, added.

Still, some drivers worry about the night conditions. On I-75, few lights on the rugged terrain could prove hazardous as snow and sleet continued to fall.

"The visibility is pretty low, to about a mile or so. But like I say, DOT is keeping the roads up pretty good, you know?" said Elk Valley resident Jackie Brown.
