WISCONSIN — As another snow begins to fall in Southeast Wisconsin, drivers are enjoying the last bit of driving on a clean surface before the storm hits.

Friday morning's commute was messy, but didn't cause any major delays.

It's all thanks to the local Department of Public Works crews who spent the night and morning salting roads to help prevent them from freezing.

However, with more snow on the horizon, keeping the roads clear is important to local drivers.

"When I got out of the car, I was sliding around," Mary Krauss of Milwaukee said. Krauss needed to add more air to her tires Friday morning. She's taking every precaution she can to be safe on the roads.

"They are a little slippery," Krauss said. "A lot more slippery than I thought they'd be. I thought this would all be gone but oh no."

Other drivers feel a little more confident.

"To me, they were all fine," Jessica Renzaglia of Cudahy said. Roads were just wet for the most part and Renzaglia felt good about driving in her truck.

"Just kind of reduce your speed and watch drivers around you," Renzaglia said. "Got to be aware of everyone around you."
