— What’s better in wintertime than an excuse to head outside? No, really – WINTERFEST at Austin Landing is happening on Saturday, Feb. 17, from 2-6 p.m., and it’s the perfect reason to be outside on a cold winter day. Sponsored by Kettering Physician Network, this third annual event will feature everything from ice sculpting demonstrations to interactive ice sculptures, turning the Park at Austin Landing into a winter wonderland.
World champion ice sculptors, including Chad Hartson from team “Winter Wonders” on the Food Network’s Cake Wars, will be on hand to show all the amazing things they can do with ice. Be sure you are there before 5 p.m., because that is when the big Ice Battle begins. The professionals will go head-to-head and see who can create the coolest original masterpiece right before your eyes.
The best part about this event is that it’s FREE for everyone to attend! Don't forget to warm up with some fresh hot cocoa from the Hilton Garden Inn and Staybridge Suites while you’re there. Plan to come early, enjoy the fun, and then visit one of the 15 restaurants located at Austin Landing for a drink, snack or great dinner.
Due to anticipated heavy attendance, you are encouraged to park in the garage adjacent to the events area. Additional parking will be available behind Progress Park Tower. This event will be outdoors, so be sure to dress appropriately for the weather.
Bundle up the kids and bring them out to WINTERFEST at Austin Landing on Feb. 17. You’re guaranteed to have a N-ICE time!

— Heavy rains made for tough driving conditions Saturday, but high water remains a concern through the weekend.
Lower lying and more rural roads are at a greater risk of flooding, such as Ohio 68 in Beavercreek, and Ohio 725, which is closed until further notice between Peniwit and Lower Bellbrook roads.
“We just want motorists to take a little extra time in planning where they want to go,” Sgt. Rod Murphy of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.
Anyone planning to head out this morning should be aware of potential flooding that could block your way.
If you see standing water in the roadway, turn around, even if the water appears shallow.
“It’s not worth the risk. It’s better to just safely turn around and find another way,” Murphy said.
On wet roadways another concern is hydroplaning, when tires lose their grip on the pavement. Motorists in that situation are advised to “just let off the gas, slow down, and try to get to a safe area,” Murphy said.
Late Saturday and early Sunday there were reports of flooding throughout the Miami Valley.
3:27 a.m.: High water reported at Wilson Road between Fenner Road and OH-55.
3:05 a.m.: South Valley at US-35 is shut-down due to high water.
1:45 a.m.: April Lane at New Germany Trebien Road and Beavery Valley Road closed.
12:00 a.m.: Upper Bellbrook Road reported having high water.
12:00 a.m.: High water on US-68 and North at Sutton Road caused a vehicle slide off and a police cruiser was damaged.
11:30 p.m.: Hebble Creek was out of its banks in Fairborn in Greene County
