    Jackknifed trailer on US 30 in Wanatah, IN.

     

    After US 30 west finally reopened at 10:30 am CST, we passed this jackknifed tractor trailer between Wanatah and Valparaiso, IN. About 200 yards later, we saw a man digging into a snowdrift, and we only realized after we passed that the drift was concealing an entire car.

     

    High winds and lake-effect snow kept this route impassable for most cars fo more than 14 hours. We "slept" in my Civic Hybrid in the lot of the Speedway gas station in Wanatah, IN, along with more than 100 other people.
