Sounds like a right front wheel bearing to me. Raise the wheel. Put the car in neutral and spin the wheel. Grab the spring and if it's bad, you can feel the balls crunching in the race.

I agree sure sounds like a wheel bearing. Hopefully not a spun one.

apparently it wasn't a wheel bearing nor the brakes, it was just mother nature doing her best, just ice build up...
