Our unwanted Nickelback CD is still floating around the office somewhere. We reserve the right to 'gift' it to the first person who ignores our advice and drives in these winter conditions without headlights on basically being invisible on the roadway. If that won't deter people from taking care in the winter weather, nothing will #turnonyourheadlights

Roads are horrible and starting to turn to ice, STAY HOME you really don’t need that pack of cigarettes anyway#promotehealthyliving

Once Investigators had the evidence, police apprehended Grinch after a short footchase.
