On Sunday morning, the snow began to fall lightly. This was not good packing snow, but it was drifting snow. It was not very heavy to shovel, but the wind would blow it right back where you removed it. The snow caused several accidents on the freeways. Some people still do not know how to drive under slippery conditions. It is harder to stop your car with snow drifts on the road. If you go too fast, you will very often lose control of your car. Please use some common sense and be careful how you drive your car in weather like this. The life you save might be your own.
