Cedarville Sees Almost 1 Foot of Snow in 1 Hour

Posted: Updated:

Some describe Sunday night's weather as "a total white out."

About 1 foot of snow came down in an hour in Cedarville in Mackinac County. Now people in town are having to dig their way out of their driveways.

One woman says she ran late to work because her car got stuck in the ice. The road commission had to put down sand and gravel before she could get out.

People say with the mix of ice from the weekends freezing rain, and the foot of snow; the roads are the last place you want to be.

They say no matter how used to the roads you may be, take it slow.

9&10's Alyssa Gambla and photojournalist Erin Malone spoke to people in Cedarville to see how they're dealing with the aftermath of the snow.

The trucks are so heavy that even without garbage in them, they exceed the weight limit.
