Few problems reported in first snowfall of 2012
JANESVILLE Authorities reported relatively few problems from the season's first significant snowfall Thursday.
Janesville police had been dispatched to about 12 crashes or runoffs by late afternoon, but fewer problems were reported on rural roads covered by the sheriff's office, said Brian Becker, supervisor at the Rock County Communications Center.
Two or three injury accidents were reported, but none resulted in serious injuries, Becker said.
The snow started falling a short time after daybreak Thursday. By mid-afternoon, a couple inches were on the ground.
Forecasters were calling for a total of 3 to 5 inches of snow. Snowfall was expected to end Friday morning, according to the National Weather Service.
The weekend forecast calls for partly sunny skies and highs in the 20s.
