MEDFORD, Ore--- Today Newswatch 12 drove around the Rogue Valley getting video of all the snow falling. The snow slowed down traffic and caused a number of problems.
Some schools let students out early like Crater High School. Others like Medford cancelled after school activities.
Throughout the evening I was measuring the snow using a tape measure. I started at 4 pm in Medford right off of Biddle Road. I was expecting the snow to only be about two inches. I found a flat surface and stuck the tape measure in. I was shocked to see it said five inches.
An hour later at 5 pm I measured the snow again except this time on the border of White City and Medford off of Highway 62. This time I only measured a little less than three inches.
I tried this one more time at 6pm. This time I was at Biddle Road and Highway 62. Here I measured about two and a half inches of snow.
