The winter storm made for a messy commute Thursday and created a lot of problems for drivers.

Traffic was moving slow all morning long in Northern Utah and the Utah Highway Patrol said by 11:00 a.m. they’d seen 157 accidents.

“Just stay home or drive really carefully,” said Devon Whipple.

Many drivers taking it slow and giving themselves extra time to get to work.

“I’ve seen cars off the road, I’ve just been driving really slow,” said Whipple

“They’re pretty bad, I mean it took me 35 minutes to get to work this morning from Layton, Utah,” said Jake Horton.

While Monday’s snowstorm gave some people a heads up of what to expect, others tell us they think Thursday’s storm was worse.

UHP warns drivers if you do have to get out on the roads, be cautious, slow down and give other drivers space.
