LOUSIVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Plowing crews are on overdrive and overtime cleaning out main roads in the city.

The trucks were out dumping salt since 7:00 in the morning trying to get ahead of the freezing rain that can make it dangerous for drivers.

"It was ‘kinda crazy this morning," a cab driver told us. "I saw two accidents on the expressway."

Just when crews had plowed much of the city, more snow started falling around 10 a.m. Once again, it covered roads.

We spoke to one family that drove from southern Indiana.

"The roads were a lot slicker on Friday when we were on our way down here," one of the women said.

Others said that once they got out of their neighborhood, the snow didn't pose a problem.

"It wasn't that bad this morning," one driver said. "A little icy but the roads were clearing up pretty well."

At any given time there are 75 trucks out on city streets. Day and night crews have been alternating shifts.

The snow and slush made some people stay in. But for others it was just an invitation to get outdoors.
