LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – What started as rain quickly changed to snow Friday afternoon covering Louisville with an unfamiliar blanket this season.

"You know a little snow goes a long way and it gives us all a hard time," said Ronnie Bryant.  

In an instant the roads turned slick and cars were stopped, streets became parking lots.

"We saw five or six car accidents just in like a 10 mile stretch," said Katie Deulina, driver. 

Highways became parking lots. "Very scary everyone is going 5 mph and the back of my car was just drifting all the time and on the highway you could barely see the lanes," said Deulina. 

WAVE 3 News felt the pain of many drivers in Kentuckiana around 3 p.m. What would normally take a couple of minutes to get to the I-65 north ramp in downtown took us nearly an hour and a half before we were on the interstate.

Snow plows did what they could to keep up. Ronnie Bryant owns Complete Transfer. His guys were in charge of clearing the on and off ramps, a job that didn't have a clear end in sight.
"Just give these guys some room, they're working really hard and it is nerve wracking handling equipment," said Bryant. 

While those crews had to be outdoors other people like Doug Riddle wish they weren't, but he just lost his 3 year old dog, a black Border Collie/Lab mix named Jac Jac.

On Friday he searched along Hurstbourne Parkway. Jac Jac was last seen around Blankenbaker Parkway near Sam's Club.  

"I've been searching day and night trying to find him," said Riddle. 

Hoping his pup finds shelter from these freezing temperatures that continue to drop.

"I'm going to keep looking until I find him," said Bryant.
