Deputies respond to more than 35 accident reports

TRAVERSE CITY — This week's stormy weather played a role in the 35 accident reports Grand Traverse County received between Monday and Tuesday morning.

Sheriff Thomas Bensley said the Sheriff's Department received a steady stream of accident reports as snow blanketed the area and caused slippery road conditions.

“Typically people go to bed with no snow and they wake up and it comes over night,” Bensley said. “This was a little different; it started raining, got colder, then started to snow.”

Most places in the Grand Traverse region received between one and four inches of snow, said Keith Berger, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service offices in Gaylord.

Four to eight inches fell in parts of eastern and southeastern Grand Traverse County, northwestern Kalkaska County, and southern Antrim County, Berger said. The NWS received reports of six and a half inches of snow in South Boardman and eight inches in Mancelona.
