Answer:

In the first place, it was snowing too hard to see the road; in the second place, we had no chains.

Explanation:

In the first place, it was snowing too hard to see the road; in the second place, we had no chains.

Definition of the semicolon:

Semicolons are used to join two independent clauses, to separate main clauses joined by a conjunctive adverb (it helps to create a shorter sentence) or to separate items in a list that already uses commas.
