Morning Fog Makes Travel In The Area Difficult

It started off as a foggy day, and the low visibility made it difficult for some to get around. For the second morning in a row, people out on the roads had to drive through pea soup fog. Some roads are slippery in certain areas, making for less than ideal travel conditions.

Richard Nesvig/Driving Home In Fog: "It kind of comes and goes a little bit. A little worse, a little better."

Diana Kimball/Out Driving Today: "There are slippery patches out there and the snow's coming down so you know you're going to have that."

Drivers who stayed in town say the roads weren't all that bad. But those who were out on I-29 say at times they couldn't see more than 500 feet in front of them, but that it was worse yesterday.

Robert Wesley/Held Up Because Of Fog: "Yesterday I'd come up from Indiana and it was just horrendous yesterday afternoon, but it's better than it was."

Some travelers say the visibility's been reduced to just a few hundred feet in some areas and that's what's keeping them at in Grand Forks for a while now.

Robert Wesley: "It's kind of why we're still here, because of the fog this morning. We're not allowed to move oversized loads in the inclement weather, so here we sit!"

Travelers say despite yesterday and today's poor driving conditions, they're more concerned about driving during the storm that's expected this coming weekend.

The North Dakota Patrol in Grand Forks reported that there weren't any accidents today because of the driving conditions.
