BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- We've only had one snow event so far this season, but it was enough to make area roads extremely slippery.

People are used to seeing snow plows out in the storm but District-3 Public Information Officer for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Wes Watt, says there are a lot of people working behind the scenes that you don't know about.

"We have folks who have to load the salt," says Watt, "do paperwork. We have mechanics constantly working on equipment that's broken. Folks mixing the brine."

During snow storms the highway department also updates road conditions on Twitter and Facebook. Wes Watt tells you all about it on Sunday Conversations with Gene Birk on 13 News at 10 this weekend.
