windchills, 10 below there. slow improvement tomorrow and vently we shut off the lake affect. >> dan: the snowy and icy weather made for a lot of accidents especially in mentor. a scary moment in the parking lot of the tyler center plaza at tyler boulevard. someone lost control of the suv and it slid into a nearby retention popped. retention pond. there was an eight-vehicle crash that forced police to detour traffic at route 306 until it was all cleared up. accidents like that are common during bad weather. it makes you wonder if the people with longer commutes may be better off leaving the driving to the pro's. now a look at current conditions. you look a little cold. sorry. >> reporter: yes, it is the kind of windchill where it stings your face.
we have driven into cuyahoga county from menor and i will say that it was west of eastlake before there was more than one passable lane on the highway. the side roads there is snow cover. the visibility is still poor. the wind is absolutely brutal. the eastside can't seem to catch up or catch a break. it was bitter and blinding out there today. roads were snow-covered for the whole of the day as plows struggled to keep up with the blowing snow. highways in mentor slowed to a crawl and even closed at some points and visibility remained poor into the evening hours. >> terrible. >> reporter: the deep drifts proved treacherous for this semi. it was one of five rescued by this tow truck driver alone today. >> what's the worst part about it? >> it's the thickness of it. they haven't shoveled the stuff.
i was stuck back there and had to be pulled out. >> commuters who opted to rely on lake tran were happy and on time because they did. >> i don't think about it. i do my thing and take the bus. >> i have been taking the bus since october and i ain't never been late to work, not one time. >> reporter: they say an arrangement with odot allows them to navigate around the trouble spots on a snowy day. >> when traffic goes below 35 miles an hour we can go over to the shoulders and as long as they are clear we can drive the shaller into cleveland making sure our buses arrive on time. >> reporter: lake tran said they got a lot of thank you e-mails from passengers today because it is a holiday and they were operating. people were relieved to have someone else do the driving. today is good for tow truck drivers. they are making some money and some delivery people some of

>> they do their best to stay warm as they make their way up and down the snow-covered streets. and driving up and down those streets the cleveland animal protective league. >> they say this is no weather foreman or beast, but unfortunately it is always the animal is the beast that end up getting tied outside. >> reporter: this is one beast he didn't expect to see. a goat living in this dog house-type shelter outside on puritas avenue. >> we got in contact with the owner and he has consented to keep the goat for awhile. >> reporter: billy jean came out quickly to denise murray. she took the goat by the collar leading her to safety. >> just to see her out in the cold every night. she can't talk. she is helpless out here. >> reporter: helpless animals that will go anywhere seeking warmth like this one found on someone's porch on west 54th street.
all day about pets left in the cold. and they respond to every call which leads me back to billy jean. she was grateful to denise and because she can't talk she showed her. even the goat knows this baaad weather is not safe for animals who oftentimes don't mind it. >> with this type of weather what might serve as shelter in mild weather is no shell they are -- shelter on a day like today. >> she looked so happy. what a cutie. the apl tells us when it gets cold like this, even if you have a dog in a covered porch you need to bring them inside. oftentimes when you let your pet outside, they stay out a little too long and that can be dangerous. finally, check your pet's paws and make sure there is no cracking or bleeding because of the cold weather can affect that too. dan? >> dan: thanks, lidia. you will need to stay ahead of

windchills are 10 to 15 below. dangerous stuff. overnight and into tomorrow morning the lowest windchill readings are west and south. it looks like about 7 below at 7:00 a.m. in cleveland. watch how the lake affect starts to go a little west and south by morning. even impacting downtown and east before that dryer air comes in. i am thinking one to four inches and heavier eastside. the eastern suburbs will hold steady about 8 degrees here. this is 10:00 in the morning. you have the northwest wind and the dryer air. finally we are able to shut off the lake affect. additional snow on top of what you have already picked up as of 11:00. it looks like another two to four inches here. euclid around two and chardon
inches. 17 the high and still blustery and very cold. we gradually clear out and 14 your high akron canton. frigid day. lake snow will mix in sun at noon. 14. 5:00 14 degrees and still below zero. windchills in the morning. things do quiet down. although it will be cold on wednesday. cloudy sky and some flurries around with a weak disturbance. thursday increasing clouds and 29. east coast storm develops and this is going to be a big one. this will make the national news at the end of the week. right now i think the worst of the snow will miss most of our area. the southern part of ohio will have to watch out. windy on saturday and 30 as we start to warm up. 22 on saturday night. and right now i have the weekend dry with a mixed sky on sunday and 34. could be another system on monday. snow showers and wind. but 34 degrees as we lose the arctic grip by the end of the week.
>> now, it's time for the buzz sponsored by national carpet mill outlet. >> tiffani: we want to pass along some sad entertainment news. co-founder of the eagles glen frey has died. >> dan: it has been a rough couple weeks for the music industry. frey was dealing with some medical issues the past few weeks. he formed the eagles with don henley in the 70s 70s and could-wrote hits like "hotel california" and" life in the fast line." the eagles were inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame in 1998 and frey was 67. >> tiffani: jada pin cet smith -- jada pin cet smith and spike lee are boycotting the oscars. they encouraged people of color to recognize the power they do have and not beg for acknowledgment. lee thanked the academy for

making and making and making. they shot 65% in the first half. 59% from the free point line. the second half wasn't any better. they lead by 40 multiple times. this was disgusting to watch. steph curry poured in 35. lebron lead the cavs with sixteen. this game was over in the second quarter. the warriors crushed them 132-98. let's go live to quicken loans arena. tony is there and he has the pleasure of trying to wrap this blood bath up. tony, i can't wait to hear what the guys had to say. >> tony: they are pretty blunt as you would imagine. it is one night, but what is discouraging is we spent the past seven months saying if only we had kyrie and kevin love in the finals things would be different. we had them tonight and they combined to give us 11 points. more alarming david blatt saying our guys just weren't ready to play.
>> it is not so much who they are. we could have played anybody tonight and i don't know if we would have had a vastly different result. you know there is a lot of things that go into having a day that is bad. i can't deny that. it was the kind of game they wanted to play. >> lebron just talked and said it shows how far they have to go. 43 games left and they can certainly do better than this. >> june is five months away. thank you, tony. appreciate the leg work after this one. >> asking questions after that
