Rough start to the day for some Metro drivers

Drivers had to pack a load of patience as slick spots turn into hot spots for car crashes.

What started off as rain in the early hours, quickly turned into snow.

Metro classes were delayed but school was not cancelled.  One Omaha mother said it made for a rough start to her day.

“I have two kids for different schools, it's horrible,” she said. 

Yellow school buses mixed with orange plow trucks, as cars battled hilly areas and snow.

“Coming off of 192nd onto the Dodge expressway, the curve to get on, somebody spun out into the side,” said one driver. “I was driving slow, and they were behind me and they were fishtailing trying to avoid hitting me.”

And though it's probably not the best way to wake up after a long, Thanksgiving holiday, some drivers are still grateful.

“It's about time we got some, I expected it a lot sooner than this,” said one man.

The City of Omaha put 110 plows on the roads today – that’s all of its fleet.
