NE Ind. county parks plows because of winds

HUNTINGTON, Ind. - A county in northeast Indiana has taken its plows off the roads because blowing snow is making it impossible to keep roads clear.

The Journal Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1db2PXD ) Huntington County, about 30 miles southwest of Fort Wayne, announced Monday evening it was parking plows at area fire stations. It says the plow drivers will be in standby mode for medical and fire department emergencies.

The county says it will resume plowing when the winds subside. The county is under a travel warning, meaning only emergency workers should be on the roads.
