The roads were horrible this morning. I think school districts need to think more about the lives they put in danger by staying open on morings like this. Keeping schools open may cause the life of a student, is it really worth it??

At 6:30 this morning, the roads in GR were just wet and slightly slippery with the slush. Been pretty much that way all day. This is not rocket science people, just don't drive like maniacs, and you'll be fine. And stop gawking at every accident that does happen and pay attention to what the heck you're doing.

We must travel in different circles Arf. My swing on the roads today: Big Rapids to Cadillac to Manistee to Ludington to White Cloud then Home.

Only two in the ditch, and both were cars. The southern half of that trip was in 5"+ of heavy wet snow. Northern half was snow but not nearly as bad.

And I will say, I never saw anyone going faster than the conditions allowed for. Lots of traffic running in groups, no one was passing.

Many people have no idea how to drive on icy roads and they create dangerous problems for others.

There should be a winter weather endorsement on our drivers licenses which would require training and a test.
