    I35 update

    I just drove from Ames to Ankeny and I35 has no snow on it. Just completely wet as of now. Just an FYI to those wondering.

    I just put it in 4x4 and set the cruise at 82 mph, while I talk on my cell phone and eat my whopper. No worries here!

    Are you driving with your hands or knees?

    Sad thing is there are idiots that will do that. Just because you have a 4x4 SUV does not mean you can still drive 80mph on ice or snow. Ever notice that over half the cars in the ditch and flipped upside down or on the side anymore are these big SUVs? I actually think you are at a disadvantage almost having a big vehicle like that in bad weather as it's harder to control when you lose traction. It helps in slower speeds and deeper snow but when you are out on the interstate I don't think you really gain much if any of an advantage over a front wheel drive car.

    Yup, dont forget to put the DVD in for the kids and set it on your dash.

    That was good, I needed a good laugh.

    Don't you people know that if your vehicle has 4 drive wheels, it can stop faster too!

    Re: I35 update

    Oh, and thanks for the update. I wasn't planning to let a little weather stop me from hitting the game. I'm sure it will be a little worse after the game, as that's when the worst of it is supposed to hit. Hopefully with as (relatively) warm as it's been lately, major highways will take awhile to ice over.

    I just saw Redrocker slide through a red light with four wheels locked up in west Ames but luckily the cars with the green light were being cautious and nobody got hurt!!

    Roads from Urbandale to Ankeny are fine, just wet. Normal speedlimit trip.

    Just to note, the sideroads in WDM are pretty bad. Main roads are slushy/wet.

    Highway 69 on the north side of Ankeny is partially covered. Wasn't bad, but I didn't feel safe going over 45-50 there.
