Officials from Erie and Huron counties declared A Level 1 snow emergency early Sunday.

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.

I got at least 5 in Perkins. And once again, WTF does it matter if they put out a level advisory? Especially a 1? They are just saying drive safe. STFU

Nice job plowing the roads this morning. I bet you didn't think it was going to snow this much or you were trying to save money.
