Hundreds of snow plow drivers around the region have been working overtime, to try and keep up with this snow.

This is one of the snowiest winters in recent memory. In fact, this past month was the snowiest January in Fort Wayne history.

The City of Fort Wayne has spent $1.1 million on salt for snow removal this winter. That's more than the allotted $600,000 budget.

IN-DOT and the City of Fort Wayne issued a full call-out of snow plows Tuesday night. Between 6 p.m. Tuesday  and 2 p.m. Wednesday, Fort Wayne Police say there were 23 property damage accidents, five personal injury accidents, and 91 slide offs in the city.
