POTTER -- Cheyenne County Sheriff Adam Frerichs is advising not to drive county roads north of Potter unless necessary.

Frerichs contacted News Channel Nebraska this afternoon to report winds and snow have resulted in several roads north of Potter blown and drifted shut. He said the Cheyenne County Highway Department crews are working to clear the roads; however, three of the snowplows are stuck. 

Frerichs said most of the roads in the area are impassable and it is recommended not to travel in that area. Those who must travel on county roads north of Potter are strongly encouraged to drive slowly and be cautious when entering drifts.

Potter-Dix schools, along with Banner County, Laramie County School District #2 in Pine Bluffs, and Goshen County School District #1 in Torrington, all delayed the start of classes until 10 a.m. due to the conditions.
