We have officially received the first snowfall of the season, and along with it, slippery roads. While no one intends to end up in the ditch, sometimes it is out of your control. Manitowoc County Emergency Services Director Travis Waack is reminding people to be prepared for such a situation.
Waack says there is one easy way to avoid being caught in the snow.
He also described what each of the two advisories actually mean.
When there is snow flying or the roads are slippery, make sure to give yourself a few extra minutes to get to work, and a few extra feet between you and the vehicle in front of you.
