Thursday, Oct. 25, snow packed roads caused numerous slide-offs on I-84. Because of the slide-offs, several semis pulled over only to get stuck in the snow on the sidelines. The road was closed for several hours to allow time for snow removal and clean-up.
Highway 39 through Ogden Canyon was also closed temporarily due to a weather related accident.
Morgan County was hit with more than six inches overnight. Teachers who commute from Ogden were stuck in the canyon and buses were stuck in the snow, so Morgan Elementary and Mountain Green Elementary were both closed for the day. This is a rare occurrence in Morgan, so students were thrilled and kids all through the county pulled out their sleds and made the most of it.
The first snowfall of the year is historically bad for driving conditions, which makes it especially important to slow down and drive carefully.
