MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- The cold is creating a lot of problems for drivers before they even hit the road.
In Muskegon County we found a number of people struggling to get out of the driveway. Carlotta Garza had a doctor's appointment and he says she fell into a drift scraping off her windows and then discovered the only way into her van was through the back hatch.
"It started, but I had to climb in from the back to get to the front because my doors are froze," Garza told WZZM 13's Jon Mills.
Mills also had auto problems Tuesday morning when he lost the clip that attaches both windshield wipers to his windshield.
Auto stores have also been busy with a lot of cold weather requests, everything from batteries to wiper blades.
