Snow brought school closures and slick road conditions to LaRue County last week with snowfall totals averaging one to two inches in some areas by Friday, January 6.

LaRue County Schools were closed last Thursday and Friday due to unfavorable road conditions. The bitter cold caused water line breaks for the city and LaRue County High School.
