With winter weather approaching the Ellis County Sheriff's Office would like to remind everyone to allow extra time and caution when traveling. Every year we work numerous weather related accidents especially within the first few hours of incoming snow/ice. We've tried to put a comprehensive "Snow Day" link list together to help our community brave the incoming elements.
Be safe and enjoy!
