If you were thinking of going somewhere today, you might want to rethink your plans.
A winter storm that blew into the area overnight has dumped several centimetres of snow in some places and made travel inadvisable.
Shelley Morgan is manning the phones at Newcastle Towing in Drumheller.
"I don't usually do dispatch, the drivers do, (but) they said we can't work and do the phones too, so I am doing phones, just taking names and numbers and putting them in the queue," she told 99.5 Drum FM.
"Most people are in the ditches, right from just the side of the road to 50 feet in," she elaborated. "It's from here to Rosebud, it's out by Craigmyle, out by Cereal and Youngstown."
Emergency crews are stopping traffic just west of the Rosebud turnoff on Highway 9 after big truck and a small car hit head-on. Details are sketchy, but it appears the car, which was headed west, slid across into oncoming traffic and hit a truck hauling construction equipment. Injuries are reportedly not serious.
The storm is supposed to taper off this afternoon and this evening. In the meantime, Morgan asks one thing of those people who do have to hit the road.
"The guys are going as quickly as they can, as safely as they can and it would be really nice if people would slow down while they're trying to work out there."
