“We would advise that folks drive in the center lane and away from the power lines on the sides of the road and away from the falling ice,” she said. “They would also be wise to do a slip check with their foot before they step out the door in the morning.”
Neil Hartley and his home in Nichols Hills also got the brunt of the weather as the accumulating ice proved to be too much for the tree in the front yard, splitting a large limb from the trunk that came to rest across his driveway.
Despite the mess, Hartley said he's grateful for the rain that came with the ice.
“We'll have to clean up, but at least we got some rain,” Hartley said. “I'd take some more rain even if it meant colder temps for awhile. The more rain the better.”
