While the state of Indiana, USA is known for picturesque country farm scenery in the summer, explosive fall colors in the southern hills during autumn, and flowery cities during the spring, it's more known for its severe winter weather all throughout the state.

As most of y'all know, the Midwestern/Northeastern US and eastern Canada were hit (or are currently being hit, depending on how far east you live!) by a massive snow and ice storm of EPIC pwn3age.

During said epic winter storms, the state of Indiana might restrict travel (see map and right side of screen for details). Although the city of Indianapolis (Marion County, center of state) and its northern suburb Hamilton County were largely spared this time due to adequate road preparation before the storm, much of the state is still on lockdown, with many counties restricting driving to/from work, and even more counties under "red alert", making all road travel illegal unless you're emergency personnel (police, ambulance, fire, some docs and nurses). In addition, it seems that Kosciusko county up north neglected to issue any kind of alert, although any alert there would affect about 500 people. XD

But don't be fooled, Indianapolis wasn't spared the wrath of Mother Nature. I had a good 3" (8cm) thickness of ice to remove from my car's glass surfaces before I could even attempt motoring out. Yikes.

Aftermath: Whilst taking out the trash from my apartment, I walked out on the snow to the dumpster. Except it wasn't snow, it was really thick, white ice. Sheer, epic FALL ensued and my elbow's in a brace now. X(
