HUDSONVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- Snow fell steadily for several hours Friday on the lakeshore, again slowing things down on the roads.
Driving conditions have been a mess, and if you haven't seen a slide-off, you probably haven't been driving much. Thursday, for instance, saw more than 400 accidents on Ottawa County roads.
And winter doesn't even officially begin for more than a month, on December 21.
Resident Tony Hardin says it's rare for him to run his snowblower this early, but that was the case on Friday.
After all, this is Michigan, he said, asking, "What can we do?"
We can at least prepare, and some people are doing that. Demand for salt is high already, not only for roads, but also for residents looking to keep their driveways and sidewalks free of ice.
