Welcome to snowy, slushy Wauseon, Ohio, on the second day of the trip. This is on OH 108 heading south toward US 20A.

Note the ice dripping off the signs. A light snow had fallen overnight and had turned to freezing rain just before dawn.

Note the slushy condition of the road.

The Super 8 was where I spent the night.

The toll booth at the entrance to the turnpike.

Heading west on the Ohio Turnpike.

The precipitation had pretty much ended, but the road was still in poor condition.

Traffic was mainly keeping to the right lane. The left lane was snow- and ice-covered.

Ohio uses markers for I-69, even though that route never enters the state.

A salt truck lies ahead.

This was the general condition of the road, although in this photo the left lane looks better here than it generally was.

Approaching the final toll booth on the Ohio Turnpike.

First speed limit sign and route markers in Indiana, on the Indiana Toll Road.

The blank spots on these signs are where US 27 signs used to be. US 27 was decommissioned north of Fort Wayne and in Michigan.

I-69 in Indiana was in horrible condition. The sign on the right in the background marks the entrance into Michigan.

The first I-69 marker in Michigan.

Look, it's Clearview!

The ramp for Exit 3 had not been plowed or salted.

Clearview numbers in the route marker.

Still in Michigan, the first sign for an Indiana exit.
