Monday afternoon road conditions on Vicksburg lane were horrible, With all the hills and the compact ice many cars were unable to make it up all the hills as there was no sand anywhere except on the extreme shoulders of the road and that was only in some places. Cars were turning around (retreating) when coming up to the big hills (especially at Co rd 47). Please get a lot more sand on this road!
