Tomorrow marks the first official day of winter, although you wouldn't know it. We have had winter-like conditions, including biting cold temperatures, for more than three weeks.
But the official start begins tomorrow, in what is the shortest day of the year.
With winter comes many obstacles, many of them experienced when we are commuting in our cars.
During the recent early freeze, there have been numerous accidents on area roads, a prelude to what's likely to come in the following months.
