The Orange Highway Department has tested all its equipment, and the trucks are ready to roll when the first flakes fall this afternoon.
Highway Foreman Don Foyer said the town uses straight salt on the roads and they are all set to get out there to make things safe for drivers today.
“We can handle whatever comes and we’re ready,” he said.
Editor’s Note: The forecast along the coast is calling for a little less accumulation than inland areas, but slippery is slippery, so be careful out there this afternoon and evening.
If you can, stay home and off the roads. Even if you know your car can handle the conditions, there’s always someone out there that’s going to be in a hurry and a little reckless and that’s how accidents happen.
