Citizens in Salina woke up to snow cover Thursday morning. Police said they responded to about ten accidents overnight during the snow storm. Some drivers said they had problems commuting in the early morning.
"Everything was a solid sheet of ice about 7:30 or 7:00 this morning," Wes Spratlen said.
"They were pretty slick, I had trouble getting out of my driveway and around the corners," Angela Harper said.
Driving neighborhood roads proved to be a challenge while traffic on some stretches of the highway came to a standstill.
Much of I-70 from Denver to Hays was closed Wednesday into early Thursday morning. Early Thursday, the westbound lane of west of the I-135 intersection was shut down because of a jack knife truck.
"It's probably more dangerous than people realize because we;ve got all the different variables that we have to deal with," said driver of another truck, Gaylen Hogsett.
Hogsett was stuck in Denver last night on his way to Manhattan.
"We are on deadlines," Hogsett said. "A lot of people, they want to go somewhere during a storm to see if they can get there, when we have to be there."
But Hogsett says that, in the end, it's part of his job.
