Areas south of Tulsa woke up to sleet and ice Thursday morning.

The slick roads made driving tricky for travelers, especially in the Henrietta area along Interstate 40.

The road is wet and the combination of sleet and rain has made it very slushy.

Travelers getting off from nearby I-40 and the Indian Nation Turnpike said the road conditions were rough.

"It was fine until we got here and then it got cold and icy," said Brenda Boren, a traveler from Houston.

"It began to get slick and my windshield turned into ice," said James Arnold, a traveler from Kansas.

Sanding trucks were out on the roads trying to minimize sliding, especially on bridges and overpasses.

Drivers said they just tried to take it nice and slow.

"Driving slower and just making sure there is enough room between cars, you know. In case there is sliding, you don't want to run into anyone. There were some people passing me, but I'm 75 years old and I've been on the roads a long time, so I have enough sense to stop and shut down whenever it's bad out," said one driver.
