"PLEASE DRIVE CAREFULLY ROADS ARE ICY, DRIFTED AND WITH BLOWING SNOW ARE DANGEROUS!!!"
At 9:00 a.m. M-34 "Hudson Rd" was Closed per the Hillsdale County Sheriffs Department between Hudson and Pittsford due to a multi-vehicle accident at M-34 and Waldron Rd. At 9:57 a.m. M-34 was reopened after the accident had been cleared.
At 9:30 a.m. one mile north of M-34 and Jerome Rd a two-car head on crash occurred. Some of the crews from the M-34 accident responded to Jerome Road while other fire crews remained on M-34 until that scene was cleared. Crews responding to the Jerome Road accident advised Jerome Road was completely drifted shut in places north of M-34.
M-34 is very icy and white-out conditions from blowing snow.
Pittsford and Hudson firefighters as well as law enforcement were on scene and trying to keep from being hit also due to severe weather and road conditions. That is why the "HCSD" closed the highway.
Accidents were numerous around Hillsdale County today especially on Concord Road near Litchfield Road, also the Reading area on M-49. Northwest of Pittsford a car hit the back of a Hillsdale County Road Commission truck.
The cold front moved across Hillsdale county from west to east this morning bringing snow and wind making severe white-out conditions and icy roads that brought traffic to a stop in several locations with accidents and injuries.

WALDRON — Waldron Community Schools will be leasing two new school buses for the 2014-15 school year, replacing two older buses in the fleet.
José Vera, superintendent, said the school board unanimously approved the leasing option during the Feb. 10 meeting. “ It has proven to be costeffective,” he said.
The lease comes with 100 percent repairs included and if the school system does the work, they will bereimbursed for labor.
The school has six buses in its fleet, four of which are on the road on a daily basis.
The school recently received the donation of a Grinnell 4foot by 7inch baby grand piano for the fine arts department. The donation was made by Doug Stewart of Litchfield. Ron Rayba donated his time to transport and tune the piano.
During the meeting, Jon Burk was approved to coach softball and Tony Roney approved to coach boys and girls track.
The next meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. March 10 at the school.

The Waldron Firefighters and EMS had two calls last night they will not forget for a long time. The first call on Burt road east of M-99, Waldron firefighters responded with their ambulance, grass rig and rescue truck but encountered three-foot snow drifts on Camden road about 200' west of Waldron road. Reading Emergency Unit according to a Hillsdale County 911 dispatcher was pushing snow with the hood of their echo unit on Camden road coming from the west in the direction of Camden. The Woodbridge Fire Department got to the call scene quickly but without medical personal from other departments couldn't do much for the patient. According to Hillsdale County 911 the Hillsdale County Road Commission only had two trucks out for the entire county and they were both in the northern section of the county.
The second call on Main Street in Waldron the Morenci Fire & EMS Service was monitoring radio traffic in Hillsdale County and they offered to respond to Waldron as the Waldron ambulance and rescue were on the other medical and in dire straits on Camden road attempting to get back to the village. The Morenci Fire department responded a ambulance to Waldron led by a very large snowplow from the City of Morenci and two grass trucks to cut a path to Waldron and was able to transport the patient by Morenci ambulance successfully with their snowplow escort. Waldron Fire and EMS did make it back to the village having to tow one of their vehicles with another because it could not make it through the snow.
OUR OPINION, THE WRIGHT-WALDRON BULLETIN BOARD
Thank God for all the brave volunteer firemen, firewomen and all EMS personal wherever out their they were responding in this weather to attend to our emergency needs the best that they can. Thank you to the City of Morenci for allowing their snowplows to be used in conjunction with fire and medical service calls. Plus an especially thanks to the Morenci Fire Department for monitoring Waldron Fire Departments traffic to assist in watching over the Wright Township community. Your kind hearts and actions do not go unnoticed!
The Village of Waldron street department did immediately come out and plow the streets in the village of Waldron when the second call was place and Morenci was in route with a City snowplow.
