Surprise snow may be contributing to slip and slide crashes

snowword-mf-jdurham-webI was surprised to see snow on the ground this morning. There wasn’t a lot, but sure enough there it was an unbroken 1/4 inch layer of  white on the driveway at 6 a.m.

The Sheriff’s Department and Twin Lakes Police have been responding to some slip and slide crashes. No injuries so far. If you are out driving, the roads may be slicker than they appear. Several spots have been reported by police and fire personnel as being “like ice.”

The snow may have stopped for now but the forecast calls for a 50 percent chance of more snow showers after 2 p.m. and a 70 percent chance of snow tonight with less than a half inch of accumulation.
