HARDIN COUNTY — This season’s most potent winter storm blanketed the area with a half-foot of snow Tuesday.
The flakes, which started falling around 10 p.m. Monday, accumulated as fast as an inch an hour Tuesday morning, said Mark Adams, lead forecaster at the Fort Knox weather station. The heaviest snow fell between 7 and 10 a.m. and tapered off around noon.
Unlike two previous snows on recent weekends, this one not only was deeper but also fell during a morning commute.
