Slush falling on Genesee County, expected to continue all night
It's a big slushy, sloppy, slick, spongy mess on Genesee Couny roads tonight.
The National Weather Service put out a special whether statement at 10:30 p.m. advising us that we can expect this slush all night, making for potentially hazardous travel conditions.
Anybody returning from the Notre Dame/Elba basketball game in Dansville on Route 63 tonight hit a roadblock at Route 36 because of an accident. I took 36 north to York Road and was behind a long line of cars. York Road was covered by something much more like snow than the slush we encountered starting in Pavilion.
Temperatures in Batavia are not predicted to drop below 36 degrees, but the precipitation is expected to be relentless.
The City of Batavia has three salt trucks out working city streets.
As for basketball, Notre Dame upset Elba 45-40, ending the Lady Lancers' 44-game winning streak and dashing hopes of a state title repeat. We'll have photos and a story posted as soon as possible (probably not until mid to late morning).
Nick Sabato was at the Batavia game for us and will have a story later. The Blue Devils crushed Livonia 76-38.
Just drove from Batavia to Attica! It's nasty out there!! Be safe Genesee County.
No picnic from Niagara Falls to Stafford either. When I left base at 00:12 hours, there was approximately three plus inches of slush. It was long and fun ride home.
UPDATE: 20130227, at 22:40 hours, one and a half inch of new slush.
