Use INDOT Road Conditions Hotline and Other Resources for Your Indiana Travel Plans Today

On snowy days, like today, I get up around 4 a.m. to do weather closings. Yeah, someone has to do these things in radio and TV. And, luckily, my boss goes in to work about the same time and can gauge the road conditions for me. He drives a Camaro so if he can make it in (which is ALWAYS), I can make it in.

If you don't have your own personal road condition consultant, here's some resources from the Indiana Department of Transportation that you might find useful.

Farmers’ Almanac is Predicting a Snowy, Stinging Winter

OK, fine, let me correct; normal WEATHER is my thing. You know, normal temps, rain, snowfall, etc. Because of this, I always try and prepare myself ahead of time for what may come with the Farmers' Almanac. Not sure I like what the farmer has to say about this Winter.

Watch ‘One Decision’ – A Child Safety Film That Will Bring You to Your Knees

Warmer weather is coming and with that, a reminder about how traumatic and deadly vehicular heatstroke can be. In other words, leaving your child in a hot car.
