Rain fell all day Friday, while the temperatures dropped.

"The roads are slick.  I was coming down 75, and it's getting bad out there, ice and stuff starting to form on the vehicles.  It's gonna get pretty bad, I think," reported one driver.

Rain, sleet, ice, or snow, whatever comes city leaders are doing everything they can to prepare.  They need your help too.

"Being alert, and being aware, but also being calm, and being patient," said Mayor Jim Gray.

The city sent out more than 40 plus salt trucks to monitor and treat roads.

"If you see one of our trucks, what we're trying to do is make it safe for you all, so just remember that if you can stay back, and I know that a lot of times you get in hurries, but we're just treating the roads to make it safer," said Albert Miller, LFUCG Streets & Roads Director.

The police brought in extra staff for a quicker response, and to get us through rush hour.

"If the weather conditions do get, and the street conditions are bad, the best thing to do is to stay off the roads unless you absolutely have to be on them," said Police Chief Ronnie Bastin.

Kentucky Utilities also is keeping a close eye on the storm.  Early on, they reported few outages in western Kentucky, which a spokesperson felt was a good sign for us in the Bluegrass.
