WW)—Enid Public Schools, the Garfield County Courthouse and many more locations and events are closed or cancelled today due to the icy road conditions. It all started Monday with light freezing drizzle and fog that left many roadways slick and hazardous. The freezing drizzle and light snow is resulting in black ice, which is hard to see on highways, city streets and in parking lots so drivers need to slow down and use extra caution.
