    Icy Conditions

    I just walked out to get the mail, and slid on the pavement most of the way. Be careful if you're driving anywhere, it looks slick.

    Re: Icy Conditions

    Heard a crash. Looked outside and some poor 16 year old had blasted the curb while turning onto our street. Are the front wheels supposed to point the same direction?

    My buddy just called and said he was on the way to the game and multiple cars were overturned in the ditch so decided to turn around. This would be East of Ames on hwy 30.

    They aren't too icy if you drive with some level of intelligence.

    How do you know? You're driving around on a mountain goat!!!

    And probably trying to figure out whether it can take off from a treadmill.

    I live in north Ames and the streets are completely covered. I've seen one car drive by our street in the last hour and it wasn't setting any speed records.

    This was expected guys, it is the day of a home game at Hilton, which means **** weather.

    Re: Icy Conditions

    Please don't risk it coming to Ames right now...it is completely ice covered and have watched 3 vehicles not get up our apartment drive and its only a 2% grade at most...please do not try! I have seen 2 people try to stop to pull off of our road and slide right past the intersection and just park their cars! It is very slippery out so please don't risk it.

    I took an hour and a half coming home from work in Ankeny one day. Good luck on the record. I don't want it anymore.
