We have received anywhere from 1/4" to 1" of ice and what some call snow, I say it's sleet. Anyway schools ate under delays or closed. We are headed to the San Antonio Stock Show for our oldest Daughter to compete in the Individual Food Challenge. Leaving early to give us time to get by all the folks who don't know to slow down and end up in the ditch.

I hope that you have a safe and sucessfull trip. This is when a container of sand or kitty litter in the car can make a difference. I carry a bucket of sand in my van incase I get iced in and it is too slippery to walk. Good Luck, Rick

Drive safe in those conditions. There's probably many folks down there, that have just no clue

on how to drive in those conditions. Play defence.

 

On the bright side, now you probably don't feel so lonely, being you're finally getting

a taste of our northern winter this year. Welcome aboard.

Be careful, Brian. I'm sure you can handle it. It's the others that haven't a clue!

Yep, Brian is a born Hoosier, so he can handle himself just fine on slick roads.  He just needs to be ready to make evasive maneuvers.

i hope you guys keep that weather south or the boarder, but i know you like to share and snicker a bit so thats probably the storm they are warning us about coming in for late sat and sunday, theres no salt or sand available, and the citys been out for a week so its going to get interesting if that hits us, they have simply been closing roads

Ice is bad news for driving. Unpredictable and the only thing you can do if you must travel is too leave early and slow down to a safe speed. It sounds like you have that covered Brian. Have a safe trip!
