Winter storm socks mid-Michigan

Snow, locally heavy, will continue today across the region, say forecasters from the National Weather Service.
Travel has become difficult due to snowy and icy roads and reduced visibility, down to a quarter to half a mile at times in snow.
The heaviest snow has fallen near and northwest of a line from Zeeland to Alma where a total of 6 to 12 inches is expected by 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Headed west? Lake effect snow will continue to develop through Wednesday into Thursday with significant accumulations possible, especially near and west of U.S.131.

Mid-Michigan residents awoke to find lots of snow -- like this almost-buried deck at a home in Lake Isabella.

Observers reporting to the National Weather Service measured 8.3 inches of new snow northwest of Mt. Pleasant, and 10.5 inches of new snow southwest of Weidman. At Lake Isabella, 14 inches of snow was on the ground.

It's a winter wonderland -- if you're not trying to drive anywhere.
