Sutton said a lot of crashes during and just after snow storms are preventable.
“These are low-speed, minor damage, sliding into other vehicles, sliding off the road crashes,” he said. “They are preventable. Go slower where you need to go and if you don’t need to travel in these conditions, pick up your bread and milk on the way home and just stay off the roads.”
Sharon Bradley said people should start “freezin’ for a reason.”
As an organizer of the 17th annual Law Enforcement Polar Bear Plunge, Bradley hopes the colder weather will inspire people to go jump in the lake.
The plunge will be held Feb. 9 at the Lodge and Conference Center at Geneva-on-the-Lake, with events beginning Feb. 8.
Plungers gather sponsors to benefit Special Olympics Ohio. Registrations are available at www.polarbearplunge.org.
Business sponsors are needed to boost contributions to Ohio Special Olympics. To sponsor, call 993-1201.
The organizers of Geneva’s Winterfest are keeping their fingers crossed for snow on Feb. 2 as the city celebrates all things chilly.
The city employees couldn’t finish setting up the ice skating rink until the temperature dropped, Assistant City Manager Jennifer Brown said.
Nature is the only way to freeze the ice on the rink.
Brown said the city is planning for the skating rink to be operational by the new gazebo next to the Geneva Community Center in time for Feb. 2.
