GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- It's so early to have winter hit so hard, but drivers seem to have accommodated pretty well. Although there have been a number of accidents, none have been terribly serious or very large.
A number of people told WZZM 13 Tuesday's road conditions were some of the worst West Michigan driving they've ever experienced.
Travelling on level ground was slow, if steady. Going uphill, though, could be tough -- even for a truck with double tires in back.
Betty Haga lives near Leonard and Perkins on the northeast side of Grand Rapids, one area where slippery conditions have challenged drivers.
"We've been watching this since 6 this morning," she said. "Every time we get snow, it's like this -- they can't make the hill. You get one or two with bad tires. Minivans are bad; they block it all up."
