Carencro Fire Department and Duson Fire Department assisted the Lafayette Fire Department early this morning on a large house fire on N. Montauban Drive. The home was fully involved but both houses on either side, which were 8 feet away, were spared. ... See MoreSee Less

LA1252 in Carencro. Please stay off the roadways today folks. I know everyone "thinks" they can make it to their destination, but keep this in mind. Our resources are taxed. If you hit the ditch like this, be prepared to be out there for a few hours waiting on a tow truck. Although some ice is melting, temperatures will start dropping again this afternoon, and will re-freeze the water on the road making things just as bad or worse. DOTD is doing the best they can, but they only have so many trucks. Be safe guys, enjoy a movie and hot chocolate today! ... See MoreSee Less
Mais they settin up early dis year for the Carencro Mardi Gras Parade them.
This ain’t nothin compared to Up North ... just they have trucks to dump salt on the roads
You're also putting first responders life at risk. A Firefighter died after being hit by a vehicle while working a wreck.
To many people saying I have 4 wheel drive well guess what 4 wheel drive ain't going to do anything for you on ice.
Cajuns are not built to drive in this...give'em mud anyday!
What is bad some employers are expecting people to report to work! Even working for a home health company, all of our nurses are pulled off the road!
Lived in Michigan, had huge 4 wheel drive truck. When you hit black ice it doesn't matter what you are driving or how experienced you are, all you can do is hold on and pray. STAY OFF THE ROADS IF POSSIBLE. We are all suffering from being housebound but please think of others!!
And most Cajuns, man and women, think, SHEEEE.... I CAN HANDLE THAT LITTLE BIT OF ICE....NO-NADA-NO WAY JOSE... POLICE DEPARTMENTS, HOSPITALS why make their lives harder than it already is.... unless EMERGENCY STAY HOME! Cajuns just are NOT able to understand how o drive on iced roads...
My bus isn’t going on the road like this. Guess where my route is? Hwy 1252. It’s not worth a life for a pay check.
"I have 4 wheel drive. Hold my drink and watch this!"
Since NONE of you people have studded tires, stay home. It's cold in the ditch. 4wd is for mud, not ice. To drive in this safely, you need an AWD vehicle (Not 4wd) with studded tires and a lot of experience.
Mud grips and snow grips on tires are two different treads people.
So, what did you accomplish today.
Getting no where’s for sure.
I hope you all was at least bundled up enough for the long wait.
Some people were wanting one of my friends to go into her shop to get their brows done cause they had an appointment..
Really these meme people cause it’s about me and the hell with anyone’s safety works my nerves..
If your destination is an emergency stay off the road. One problem leads to another.
People are PREPARED UP NORTH. They have the proper salt trucks, machines to clean roadways, chains on tires etc. etc. And the sense to SLOW DOWN AND LISTEN TO THE AUTHORITIES .
As a nurse, we were required to go to work. Hospitals require 24 hour staffing as in many areas where first responders are needed. They did offer for us to sleep at the hospital, but the roads were already icing at that point. I drove VERY slowly and saw one car in the "s" curve on my first morning after the snow. I was thankful for the 4x4 truck I was in, but I also used common sense and gave myself three times the amount of time needed to get to work. I was blessed to have stayed safe. I am amazed that from the one car I saw in the "s" curve, that so many vehicles went off the road there. Wow.
Yes Raynell...it was really we and another girl almost hit each other & plus another time my car was spinning around my anxiety is through the roof I have to take my Med. I had to take a back way to get out and go to work
We are west of Lafayette and my husband thought we needed to run to the store. I begged him to stay home. We went. Twice, we slid on the road. Not worth it! Please stay home unless it's an emergency or if you are part of emergency personnel. Even if you think your vehicle can handle the icy roads, someone else's may not and wreck into you. Not worth it!
It will be school buses like this if we have school tomorrow , don't talk bad about me but the truth is the truth
Omg here in West Virginia that is a normal winters day for us!! We drive like normal to work, school and other places we may need to go! Stay safe down south!!
Tell me about it man I got up this morning thinking I was going to be able to drive and then I kind of trying to get in the stop sign and I slide to hit the drainage of the road and I'd like oh man I got to be careful it's kind of slippery
Lol. Those are typical roads up here in Canada in winter time.....lol. We don’t shut anything down. But god do I miss living down there
Just think about your deductible on your insurance and how much they are going to devalue your car if it's to much damage. Is today's salary worth it since they understand.
I'm not so worried about people that know what to do in these conditions. But so many novices out there thinking they can, usually start the chain reaction
I learned to drive in blizzard conditions and I am not driving unless it is a true emergency I am not joking this kind of behavior will cost you and your family their lives so tell me that trip to the mall is worth someone's life ?
OMG A PILE UP!!! Plz listen folks.. Not worth freezing to death... These cold temperatures kills!! If Emergency's call 911.. Help will come im sure.. God keep us All safe & healthy!!???!! Also our
H.Father,,give wisdom to All IJN Amen..
Thanks for all that you guys do!
