ADRIAN, MI (Toledo News Now) -

Parts of Michigan have received more snow and freezing rain than the Toledo area, and it's causing problems for some road crews there.

Rain stopped around 4:30 Tuesday afternoon. It turned into a wet, heavy snowfall for a couple hours. The snow slowed down around 8 p.m., but turned into ice pellets. The mix of snow, rain, and freezing rain has made for very slushy road conditions.

The City of Adrian had three plows on the roads Tuesday night, cleaning up main roadways through town as well as state highways.

Superintendent of Adrian Public Works Mark Bishop said he has been trying to stay ahead of the storm, but it has been tricky with the constant changes.

"Trying to keep track of the weather, I'll be out driving the roads, seeing how it is doing and everything else," Bishop said. "It's a logistical nightmare for Public Works…That's part of the reason we're only running three trucks right now. It started out as rain, now we have snow. It could go back to rain again, and then more snow."

Bishop also said he plans for his crews to be cleaning up after the storm until Thursday.
