Ready or not….snow is here, and many Kansans experienced their first signs of winter.
White flurries and chill is what some people woke up to Thursday morning.
“It’s only November, and it’s snowing,” Sarah Allen said. “It already snowed in October, and November is kind of the start of winter. I was hoping we weren’t’ going straight into winter.”
McPherson saw about three inches of snow, enough to make a snowball.
And while it’s fun for some.
“I like snow,” said 3-year-old Maci Hedberg.
Conditions like this are serious business for McPherson County Sheriff Jerry Montagne who said he’s responded to one slide off today.
“We’re going to be extra vigilant and have the officers watching out for broken down vehicles,” he said. “Especially the first snow, we get a lot of slide offs.”
No matter what time of the year, he said it’s always best to be prepared for the conditions.
“Allow yourself more time when going places, make sure you got plenty of gas, keep your headlights on, seat belt always and drive slow,” Montagne said.
