Slow moving and difficult driving for many around the QCA today. Officials in Scott County were recommending no travel earlier today due to limited visibility.

Now the roads are a completely different story. A lot of the roads around the are basically just wet pavement. Warmer temps have helped to melt away that snow. 

Commuters in rural areas had an especially hard time trying to get to work in the snow storm. Monty Long from Muscatine, IA said he was preparing for the worst case scenario, just in case he got stuck on his rural route to work.

"Something worse happens, I want to make sure I have a full tank of gas," said Long. "They're bad. They're deep. The snow is deep. So, I wouldn't recommend going on a rural road unless you've got four wheel drive."

It usually takes Monty Long about 20 minutes to get to work in Columbus Junction. But that proved to be a more difficult task with the roads being more hazardous this afternoon. The snow did begin to let up later this afternoon allowing smoother flowing traffic.
