  1. Roads were very slick and dangerous last night, I drive 30 miles one way to and from work, Thumbs up to the Allen county road crews I saw at least 8 salt trucks treating the icy roadways in Allen county, Once I entered into Noble county I didn’t see not one salt truck in a 20 mile stretch of State road 3, The road was pure ice it was a stressful drive thank god for my 4WD, 15 to 20 mph was as fast as you could drive, I work 2nd shift my drive home was between 11:15 pm and midnight.
