You know how it is.. the first snowfall and commute with black ice and everyone has to remember how to drive in the winter! There are lots of reports of black ice on the roads, and you need to allow yourself extra time driving.

Be sure to put the cellphone down, concentrate on driving and watch out for others. That old mantra of "drive defensively" are the watchwords of the day!

Remember the areas that typically have black ice... around the Lucerne Inn if you're commuting between Ellsworth and Bangor.
