Huron County Sheriff Dane Howard has issued a Level 2 snow emergency until further notice. Erie County also is now under a Level 2 snow emergency.

Also, the city of Norwalk is under a parking ban until further notice.

In Ohio, there are three levels of snow emergency, with Level 1 being the mildest. Here the definitions of each level:

Level 1 - Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads also may be icy. Motorists are urged to drive cautiously.

Level 2 - Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow and/or ice cover. Only those who believe it is necessary to drive should be on the roadways. Contact your employer to determine if you should report to work. Motorists should use extreme caution.

Level 3 - Roadways are closed to all non-emergency travel due to extremely hazardous conditions. No one should be on the roadway unless it is absolutely essential to travel or a personal emergency exisits. Contact your employer to determine if you should report to work. Those operating vehicles on the roadway for non-emergency reasons may be subject to arrest.

Roads Closed...blah blah blah...Emergency Vehicles only...blah blah blah...doesn't mean a darn thing of they don't enforce it - which they won't.

They can't pull everyone over just to see if they are going to work. Now, that would be a waste of time and taxpayer monies and give you something else to B**** about. Level 3 means, hopefully you are smart enough to stay off the roads unless you are going to work.

Why would you be out UNLESS you were going to work??? Very few places cancel work because of weather. They are the ones who should have to pay fines for not closing.

Exactly what I was saying.

Surprising that our ancestors when faced with similar harsh weather while driving horses and buggies survived to produce the current crop that are wringing their hands over snow and cold.

Make sure your vehicle is winterized with plenty of gas, throw some extra warm clothes in the back, grab some snacks and go to work.

Be careful, I made those comments on SR and was called all kinds of names and told I was sticking my head in the sand. I was part of the problem.

What's next in the nanny state; mothers having children taken away because they allowed 'em to play in the snow or guys being arrested because they're out shoveling?

Maybe fire, police and EMS should stay off the roads too if it's so dangerous?

I called to make sure I could blow the snowmobile tracks out of my driveway. Last guy that pulled that little trick got a felony! Can't be too careful here in heroin county.

Dr. Information

For the 100th time. The cops have not and do not go around looking to pull people over. They only cite anyone if they are in a ditch, etc, which by the way, they would cite you on a summer day if you were in a ditch for failure to control.

From above article:

"No one should be on the roadway unless it is absolutely essential to travel or a personal emergency exisits (sic)."

Reads otherwise.

Still doesn't answer my 'potential liability' question I posited on another story.
