Thursday night’s snowfall created slick roads, downed trees and caused power outages to much of North Carolina.

The triangle area received about 2 – 21/2 inches of snow but the freezing temperatures made for a treacherous commute this morning.

Most of the problems caused by the snow were traffic-related, with US 70 in Durham being a sheet of black ice for early commuters.

In Raleigh, a driver lost control and crashed into an officer with North Carolina State Capitol Police on Friday morning.
