DUBUQUE (KWWL) - Streets turned into streams as snow melted in the hills of Dubuque. Several bluffs even looked like water falls, flowing onto the street below.

And while melting snow clears the streets, within a few hours temperatures drop and that melted snow, froze again.

"We've on our way home from Anig, Wisconsin. And it's been we all the way down, it's rained hard," said Bruce Arnold of St. Anthony.

Rain also came with fog.

"I drove in most of it last night, heavy heavy fog. You could see about 5 feet," said Tim Loecke who was on his way to Manchester.

And the fog delayed flights out of the dubuque airport.

"We were gonna leave early but my brother from Austin, Texas, couldn't get out this morning. So were were waiting for the possibility that his flight wouldn't leave and we would have to drive him to O'hare. So we're going out now as the temps descend," said Pat Brannon of Chicago.

And as temperatures drop, and drivers return home from the holiday. There is only one thing to say:

"Only 2 1/2 hours and we'll be home," said Arnold.

"Drive safe," said Loecke.
