The Sheriff's Office utilizes standardized winter road condition advisory levels to inform the public about the general condition of roadways throughout the county during a winter storm, particularly in the rural areas. Localized geographical areas within the county may experience better--or worse--road conditions then those listed in a given advisory level. Please monitor weather forecasts and/or information broadcast over or printed in local media outlets before you determine whether to venture out on the roadways. Please do not call the Sheriff's Office to make general inquiries about road conditions.
 

Level 1 - Roadways are hazardous due to accumulated snow or ice. Drive cautiously.

Level 2 - Roadways are hazardous due to blowing and drifting snow and/or ice cover. Only those who believe it is necessary to drive should be on the roadways. Contact your employer to determine if you should report to work.

Level 3 - Roadways are closed to all non-emergency travel due to extremely hazardous conditions. No one should be on the roadway unless it is absolutely essential to travel. Those operating vehicles on the roadway for non-emergency reasons may be subject to arrest.

^^stupidcomment^^^ Why hasn't our sheriff issued a level3?? Even Sandusky county issued one and we know how sweet that department is!

News meteorologist always make a big deal out of snow storms to get viewers. Learn how to interpret a radar image and rely less on the weather people's propaganda. The radar from the last 48 hours showed the storm was going to mainly impact areas west of Fremont. It also showed where the rain/snow line paralleled 250. Causing less accumulation.

Absolutely. But 3 days ago it looked like it was going to hit us like it did Toledo. They downgraded the Storm periodically the last couple of days. You are the same people who would complain if they didn't say anything at all! Better safe than sorry, I think they did a fine job predicting.

Frankly, with as little snow as we seem to have gotten, I'm surprised they even declared a Level II.

My husband had to go to Norwalk at 7 this morning and he took 250 all the way. He said it was covered in ice and that some places were drifted. I think that's why it was declared a level 2.
