The Lenawee County Road Commission is reporting near white-out conditions this morning (Feb. 5) as road crews work on getting the main roads clear. Road crews began plowing roads at 4 a.m. The county is now under a Level B snow condition yellow, which means road conditions are extremely hazardous with heavy snow and drifting conditions. Motorists are urged to curtail driving unless it is an emergency, according to Lenawee County Emergency Management coordinator Curtis Parks, who said the Level B will remain in effect until further notice.

Also, the Michigan State Police is out this morning with several vehicles stuck in the roadway in the area of U.S .223 between Driggs Road and Palmyra Road.
All Lenawee and Monroe county schools are closed for another day, due to the weather.
