Winter isn't even officially here yet (it starts Sunday, December 21, 2014), but the winter storm season has officially started. The first storm of the 2014-2015 season left several inches of snow on the ground and many cars in ditches or auto body repair shops as travel was made difficult by snow and ice-packed roadways.
