Now that winter is Here... please be careful travelling!

Over the past week or so, we've seen a pretty marked change in the weather pattern across central and north-central Wisconsin... the sunny and 60 degree days are now a thing of the past and some areas have already had to shovel their first snowfall of the year.

After working the afternoon and evening in the newsroom tonight (Monday November 17, 2008)... I have heard of at least 20 accidents on the roads that are attributed to icy road conditions and/or driving when conditions don't warrant the speed (i.e. driving too fast on the icy roads).

Please please PLEASE be careful traveling.  I know I say it every year, yet when I hear of all these accidents, it concerns me that I am somehow not doing my job because of these accidents.   Slow it down, don't use the cruise control, and allow some extra distance between you and the cars around you!
