    I drove from Ames to Nevada about 4:30 this morning and it was not all that bad.

    The roads were in good condition, just allow time and drive safely.

    Re: Anyone drive today yet?

    Just got to work, driving from Johnston to NE 14th on 35/80. It wasn't bad, a little packed snow, but traffic was moving at about 45 mph and no one was being too stupid. Except that idiot who was only going 25 in the far left lane. Surface streets were actually worse than the freeway, with a little deeper snow.

    I drove at about 5:00 AM to go work out and then to work where I just arrived and it really isn't that bad. Getting out of my driveway was the hardest part.

    Just got downtown from Clive. Nothing to worry about. Slower than normal, but I didn't see anyone having any trouble.

    I'm about to head out to go to from Ankeny to DSM. Not too worried.

    From downtown (MLK) to 63rd the roads where fine, just give a little extra time.

    Re: Anyone drive today yet?

    The side roads in WDM were horrible...not plowed at all. But the main roads (Grand, EP, Mills Civic, etc.) were ok, same as they usually are after a snow. A little slower commute but not much.

    Re: Anyone drive today yet?

    Thinking I'll probably go in around 11. I'd go now but problem is my car is still in the shop from my winter accident over 2 weeks ago and the fiance doesn't want our only car at the moment out of commision too so my hands are tied since its not my car. Think I might be getting mine back this weekend though.

    65/69 looks pretty crusty from Indianola to the south side, but I only travelled a short way on it.

    Ankeny to DesMoines took me about 30 minutes. The roads are not too bad.

    No troubles. It'll be even easier as this day goes on.

    Took 35 and 235 from Ankeny to WDM; about 45 most of the way. Roads weren't too bad; some spots on 235 were worse than others.
