Winter weather hits Michiana

Posted:

The wind blew the leaves and clouds across Michiana Monday, but it wasn't a typical Autumn day.

South Bend resident Cathy Perman says, "It's cold, I'm cold real fast."

South Bend resident Joice Perman says, "I don't like it."

Cathy and Joice spent Monday afternoon feeding the ducks at a South Bend park and admit the weather caught them off guard.

Joice says, "I have to go out to the garage and get my winter clothes."

Cathy says, "I like fall when it's in the 50s and 60s and sunshine. I don't like summer that's too hot. I'm an in between person."

This weather brought a mix of rain and snow and the wintry weather is putting city and county road crews on alert.

"We're prepared," says Mark Horvath with the South Bend Street Departments.

He says they send people home early when this kind of weather comes in just in case they're needed later to clear roads.

Horvath says, "We're hoping not to use the plows in front yet. The underbody plows are on and yes, we're ready to go."

He says they have plenty of salt to get them through and says when you live in Michiana, you know what happens this late in the year.

Horvath says,  "We've had storms in October before and we keep a close eye on the weather."

So street crews appear to be ready for this wintry weather.

And Cathy and Joice will just have to accept the fact that Old Man Winter is not too far away.

Joice says,  "I guess it's my favorite time of the year anyway, so I guess I can't really complain."

Cathy says, "I'll hibernate now."

Since this is our first taste of snow for this season, street crews and police remind you to use extra caution when it is snowing and slow down on roads that are wet. Wet roads can turn to ice if it get's cold enough.
