First winter storm delivers snow, driving difficulties
To the delight of winter enthusiasts and kids waiting for Santa Claus, Mother Nature delivered Dec. 20 with a snowstorm that would bring a white Christmas to Ogle County.
However, the storm also brought blizzard conditions and slick roads causing accidents and leaving stranded motorists, especially in the northwest corner of the county.
"Routes 72 and 26 north of Forreston were the worst," said Sheriff Michael Harn. "People just abandoned their cars because they couldn't see. That area got twice as much snow as the rest of the county."
