With a snow storm expected to hit the ridge in the coming days, residents in Paradise and Magalia are preparing for slippery driving conditions.
"I just make sure I have the car running good and have chains for the truck and car," Ken Brow said.
Even those who are not planning to be in town are getting their homes ready for possible freezing temperatures.
"I'm just going to get some bubble wrap and some tape and check it out. Maybe even drain the pipes in a place I have that is vacant," Judy Fawcett said.
It's not just residents that are getting ready.
Town workers have been preparing the town's seven snow plows for the storm.
"Typically our snow levels are usually above the Billie or Wagstaff, but with this cold storm coming in we expect it a little lower," Paradise Public Works Manager Paul Derr said.
When the snow begins to fall, the town will have employees ready to clear all the major roads.
They're also asking residents to limit their driving during that time.
"If they can just drive slower and watch out for safety personnel," Derr said.
While the storm may slow things down on the ridge, residents say it can be nice to sit down and enjoy watching the snow fall, even if it means dealing with freezing temperatures.
Even if it isn't snowing in your area, there could be ice on the road.
So you should think about giving yourself a little more time in the morning.
