Driving can also be a challenge. 

"They're going to have to go much slower," said Bud Chauncy of First Class Driving School in Bossier City. "Generally, we say if the road is covered with snow or ice, cut your speed whatever it's posted in half." 

One resident and her family are not afraid for the possible snow in the area. 

"No panic," said Frances Rains. "We're just going to go inside and it's going to be a normal day for us."
