Friday's early snow storm did not stop some people from heading out on the highway and leaving town.
Ryan Bruski attends Bismarck State College, but he tries to go home to Montana to visit family on the weekends. But this drive is a little more difficult."It has not been very good. Been very slow and windy. The wind's blowing my pickup around all over. It's just one of them fall storms."
But other travelers said it could be worse. "Oh, not too bad. A little wet," according to Lee Engelter.
"I came from Elgin, down there it's pretty bad," said Jon Kiewipf, another motorist.
High way patrol says you should use extra caution while on the roads, by reducing speeds and avoid using cruise control.
"This is our first storm of the season. It's early and that's when people need to re-train themselves to drive and that's by slowing down, observing the changing conditions and not using cruise control is one of the main things, on conditions like today," says Highway Patrol Officer, Captain Kyle Kirchmeier.
Captain Kirchmeier says that so far there haven't been too many accidents. "It's a little worse in the southwest region of North Dakota. We've had some vehicles in the ditch and stuff out there starting. So far around Bismarck and Mandan it's been fairly good up to this point. But I'm a little more concerned with tonight after it gets dark."
Captain Kirchmeier says people need to watch for slippery conditions and snow piling up on the roads and bridges.
