With more snow and ice on the roads Thursday morning, driving for some was a little dangerous.

"The problem is other drivers that speed and don't pay attention to people around them, or city plow trucks," Michelle Ray said.

Michelle and Justin Ray were out delivering newspapers overnight.

"We lived here our whole lives. We know how to drive in this weather," Ray said.

Their typical three-hour route turned into a 5.5-hour trip.

"It was slippery, but not as bad as Monday," Ray said.

For Kelsey Huber, waking up to snow then having to drive in it was a complete mess.

"I was hoping the roads would be better. I left my house a little after 6, and they were more snow packed than I anticipated," Kelsey Huber said.

"I was hoping plows would be out most of the night," Huber said.

Huber said because the roads were so slushy and slick she took it easy.

"I could control it, but I was going under the speed limit, mostly under the whole way," Huber said.

Although the streets are fine to drive on now, Huber said she's concerned for what's to come tonight.

"Now its just wet and slushy, I'm not worried, maybe later this afternoon but right now it's fine," said Huber.
