- Sheriff doesn’t recommend driving tonight
The main roads are somewhat passable for now, but after the traffic slows for the evening and temperatures drop, the roads will become icy again, Sheriff Roger Deeds said. He doesn’t recommend driving tonight. “And with the ruts and bumps, I think drivers are in for a bad night and don’t advise driving unless they absolutely have to. The side roads are still bad and will get worse when it all refreezes.”

- Slip-sliding from Glen Rose to Lipan
It was a harrowing trip for a Lipan resident after getting off work from his midnight shift Friday at the sheriff’s office in Glen Rose. The drive “was solid ice all the way. Some places the sleet was so thick it was scraping the bottom of the car, and my car sits fairly high off the ground. Anybody that drives today is a fool, including me.”
