Winter Storm hits Butte County
If you were up early this morning, you most likely noticed an unusual site if you live in the Valley.
Snow is not common here in Chico, so we were in for a great surprise today. Due to the unusual conditions, California Highway Patrol closed the Skyway at Honey Run Road, and then Bruce Road.
We would like to take a moment to remind you of just a few safety tips while you are traveling in snow or icy conditions:
- Slow down. Accelerate and brake slowly
- Leave more distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you. This will help to prevent collision if your car slides
- Don't stop if you can avoid it
- If you are feeling uneasy about driving in these conditions, simply don't. Staying home may be your best option
Stay safe out there!
