    Yeah. I went for a little drive earlier when approximately two of us were on the road. Probably a good idea to cancel.

    I teach in Urbandale and we are canceled for the 5th time this year. I can't remember another time where the big schools in the Des Moines area canceled so many times.

    I drove on the 4lane HWY 30 from Ames to Nevada at 5:00 this morning. Highway was ok but streets in Ames and Nevada are pure ice. Glad there was no traffic because I slid through several intersections at 5 MPH.

    Just drove to downtown. Side streets are pure ice, more traveled streets (like 86th) are fine, 35/80 is not too bad. I drove about 40mph.

    The driveway up to our office off university is fairly steep....might just end up parking on a side street across the street.

    I got out of my car at about 6:05 for my men's group this morning, got back out there about 6:40, and my car was completely covered in ice and it's pretty slick especially off of the roads in parking lots. Be careful out there folks.

    Yea, this winter sucks. Ever since that storm the second week of December, it's been every other week we've had a storm that knocks out a day or two. Also, Anyone else having flickering power already? Maybe I've been lucky, but I don't remember a winter storm knocking out power in a town I've been living in. (Granted, most places have been in or immediately around CR or DSM)

    About the same.

    I would not say 80/35 and 235 are fine, but they are better than the side streets.

    Re: *Official Wednesday weather thread*

    I had made the decision not to go to work today and then learned that our office wasn't opening until 10:00am. Now, I'll have to decide again then. The side streets look terrible and just getting from my door to the garage will be an adventure, I think.

    I was hoping so as there is a sheet of ice on my windows that I expect to be covering the roads. I don't think I'm attending class because I live in West Ames and drive to class.

    Re: *Official Wednesday weather thread*

    Any road reports from I35 between Osceola and Des Moines? I am supposed to go there for a 9am meeting that lasts till 2pm. Trying to decide whether to try it or postpone it.

    I just heard there is a tow ban in place now......that might just make the decision for me.

    Anyone been out on the roads in Ames recently? Just how bad are they? Debating on going into work at normal time or waiting for awhile.
