Big wind

A portion of U.S. Highway 2 in Ashland County was closed because of extreme weather conditions on Saturday the Ashland County Highway Department reported. The highway was declared impassable at 2:51 p.m. from Ashland to the state Highway 13 turnoff to Bayfield. As travelers to Bayfield know the wind can just howl across HWY 2 near the end of Chequamegon Bay. Years ago ice was piled so high from the bay on the highway it had to be removed with a snowplow when the wind broke it up.

What's the difference between "extreme weather conditions" and "extreme weather"? Just wondering, ya know.

And why is it "Highway 13" but "HWY 2"? Again, just wondering.
