12/23/13 The weather outside is certainly frightful and the National Weather Service has had a flood watch in affect for much of Marshall County over the weekend. Rain all day Saturday and melting snow combined with rain snow during the day on Sunday for a wintry mix that made drivers wary of slippery conditions.
