    Isn't it a little late to create a weather thread for today?

    Actually, it probably will. Once those winds pick up, everyone is going to be effed.

    re: *Offical Wednesday & Thursday Weather Thread*

    I drove from Ames to Nevada at 4:30 this morning and visibility was good. I didn't go very fast because it's hard to tell how slick it is in spots but overall pretty good conditions.

    **********Driving update**********

    Left Johnston at 5:30.

    80/35 from Johnston to the west mixmaster is BAAAAAAAD. All ice and a lot of people driving pretty fast until they see people in the ditch. If I touched the throttle my traction control light came on. Even at times going 30mph and not touching the accelerator my stability control was kicking in.

    Once I got on 235 it wasn't as bad because there is more snow on it. I was driving about 35-40 on 235.

    Ditch count on the 3 or 4 miles of 80/35

    2 pickups
    2 SUV's
    3 cars

    2 of those vehicles looked like they just happened.

    re: *Offical Wednesday & Thursday Weather Thread*

    I just got home from the United Center.. took me 7 hours as opposed to 4.5 with normal conditions. (I live in Northeast Iowa) It was brutal...

    I saw 2 cars in the ditch when I got close to home, but otherwise there wasn't hardly any traffic.

    Re: *Offical Wednesday & Thursday Weather Thread*

    Giving it some time before I head out. Too many reports of icy roads and cars in ditches to attempt rush hour right now. Does anyone know what westbound on 235 looks like?

    Blowing snow and slickery between NE mixmaster and University. Don't know about anything further west than that.

    Re: *Offical Wednesday & Thursday Weather Thread*

    Drove from around 50th St in WDM on 235 to downtown. It took me about 45 minutes. Didn't see many accidents, but the roads were not good. Very icy and snow packed. I felt comfortable driving no faster than 25 or so and neither did anyone else. The drive home will be terrible.
