KOB-TV.com - By: Maria Guerrero, KOB Eyewitness News 4 - Along Interstate 40 westbound, the closer KOB Eyewitness News 4 got to Grants, the icier the roads became.

"I’m coming from the west from Shiprock. It's been pretty good til I got here. It's starting to sleet and getting windy here,” said one truck driver. Before long, Grants cleared up a bit.
But the howling winds did not let up, which forced drivers to take a break. "It’s hard (laughs) to keep control of your car especially if you go under the bridges and stuff,” one woman said.“It wips ya. We almost saw a semi jack-knife in front of us."
This might just be the beginning of more wind and snow coming to the area over the next couple of days. More
