The storm began with rain and sleet changing to snow on Tuesday, and continued through Tuesday night. Strong north winds caused drifting throughout the area.
Area schools closed early Tuesday and remained closed through Wednesday. Most activities were canceled on Tuesday night and Wednesday.
There were several reports of trucks stranded on hills along Highway 91 in Boone County.
In Albion, city crews were assisted by equipment and manpower from Bygland Dirt Contracting in removing the snow from downtown.
