Weather        Road Conditions

The 30 to 45 mph wind gusts that blew through Logan County on Tuesday swept patches of fields, yards and roads clean, then deposited the new-fallen snow in most strategically annoying places. Drifting disrupted travel or even movement out the front door anywhere and everywhere.

Snowplows ran all day at the Logan County Airport northeast of Lincoln. By sundown the runway and all taxiways were clear, with some scattered slick spots remaining.

The tower to the left is a historic rotating beacon that alternates green and white light. The beacon is automated when dusk falls or when visibility becomes less than five statute miles, supplying a visual cue for airport location for aircraft.

The Logan County Airport beacon was part of the lighted airway system route from St. Louis to Chicago. This was on the route that Charles Lindbergh flew as an airmail pilot.
