5:05 am
but under the snow pack in many cases is this ice. it's impossible to stop on, so while some places are down to pavement, some of the major roads, this is what you are going to have to deal with. now cdot uses the mag chloride to keep things clear, but in industrial areas it's not likely that in plows are going to come by here to salt or mag chloride down here. just take your time because it's not going to be very easy to stop on this. keep the speeds down just in case. we're going to send it back to the studio, where it's much much warmer than the single digits. thank you jayson. it's 5:05 now. we have an exclusive interview with chief of police white
