From what i heard there salt trucks where "TORE UP". I saw my first one about 3:30p.m. today, While yesterday I saw countless of them in Jackson and Celina. But they had how many days to prepare for this snow, and how long to get everything ready for winter. Sounds like someone is Lazy to me.

we live out in willow grove the roads are horrible and the main road is a state road we dont get much of this snow and ice so you would think they could spend a little on the roads to keep people safe

Yeah 136 was shut down where Terapin Ridge rd and highway 136 meet. The dips and hills right there are a nightmare even when the roads aint slick. They later opened it after they could get some salt trucks in there. I think the County should have prepared more in advance for this weather. Anyway, I really dont look foward to driveing to work in the morning after the black ice has refrozen on the roads. I also say we need to thank all the fire depts and police for helping everyone today that wrecked or got stuck out there today. They where really busy.

the scanner went crazy this afternoon and early tonight with people having wrecks. I didn't hear of anything serious. The city came and scraped our street about 4:00 this afternoon and now you can't even drive on it.I was like gezzzzzzz wtf is up with this ?? when it had the snow on it you could get some traction but now you can't. Not sure why they wasn't more prepared for this snow city county and state. But it must have been really bad from all the accidents that happen. I hope that no one was hurt in all this mess.I agree with you 92 all of them were very busy. Thanks I hope it's not me tomorrow that they have to come help.

i agree with everyone that has posted. the roads are awful. i was with a friend and we were on old celina highway in allons and its awful. we took 85 in hilham the whole way that road was fine. then we turned up by allons school and nothing but pure ice! we got to the four why by that red bar and we hit ice did a 180 and almost went into the ditch and hit the yellow sign right there. i wish the roads were better. For everyone that is out driving in the morning you better watch out for black ice! Hope everyone gets home safe!!!

Actually if people especially locally would vote for the best person for the job instead of voting for a republican or democrat, all of us would be better off. It is better than a dumb post about blaming the democratic party because your road is a mess.

Salt only works to certain temps.
Salt is hard to acquire, especially when places like Chicago and all the big northern cities outbid smaller areas in the south.
Dont you people ever watch the news?
Anyone that thinks the road commissioner prefers not to clear certain roads is nonsense.

If the big citys outbid the little smaller ones, then how in the world did Jackson County and Celina have more salt than us. And they where salting and preparing the roads earlier the day before the snow came.
