(WTVM) - Not all law enforcement had to leave the office due to extreme winter weather on Wednesday.
One sheriff's office in Georgia used Facebook as an attempt to get residents to stay home and safe from the inclement weather.
The popular post from the Oconee County Sheriff's Office's Facebook page reads:
"I know what y'all are doing. You looked out the window and saw your driveway and the 87 feet of road you can see looks good so you head into town. Folks....there is STILL ICE ON THE ROAD. There is LOTS of ice on the road. A Coke truck hit a chicken truck what ran off in the ditch on 441...in the meantime some dude rolled his pickup on the Loop...and there are cars in ditches all over the county.
I know you need cigarettes, beer and wine to get you through having your kids at home. Can you just do without for a day? Stay home."
