Whether you call it seasonal affective disorder or the winter blues, the psychological effects of this year’s brutally cold winter, it seems to be wearing on people. Mecosta County Sheriff Todd Purcell says he has seen a spike in police calls this winter from "cabin fever". He says the most common call to his department recently involves the abuse of alcohol or domestic abuse which he says, the two generally go hand in hand. Purcell says its not all bad though, he says one of the good things to take away from this winter is that deputies have responded to fewer drunk driving incidents which he attributes to people not wanting to drive when there are snowy road conditions.
