Icy Roads Make For Dicey Driving Conditions
Police and firefighters respond to an accident at the entrance of the Marquette Mall today.
Marquette, Michigan – January 21, 2014 – Give yourself some extra time today if you’re heading out in your car. The roads are ice-covered and slippery.
I came across a two-car accident at the entrance of the Marquette Mall on my way back from the gym.
Remember to slow down when the roads are bad. A good rule of thumb is to give yourself 10-15 minutes extra to get to your destination.
Before you leave, make sure you can see clearly — brush that snow and ice off your car. Don’t forget to clear the headlights and taillights so other drivers can see you too!
If you need to drive today and this evening, please be careful. If you don’t, stay warm at home and break out a board game with your family. I suggest Scrabble.

Nancy's days of chasing little ones around are over for now, but she looks forward to chasing grandkids around in the future (the DISTANT future). Until then, she's adjusting well to the quiet and spending as much time with her daughters as they can stand.
Always in search of a good red and a great read (or a great red and a mediocre read), Nancy welcomes your suggestions on either.
