    I don't know if anyone had posted yet, but just in case...... 20191111_164228.jpg Total standstill on I-57 southbound right outside Mt. Vernon. Road is closed miles down the road. If you're coming this way, chill at the truck stop for a while.

    Good deal. For those who havent hit that spot yet.

    We are fixing to get ice shortly. Western and NW arkansas got hit as well as the northern border getting hit now with proper zero degree winter with ice and snow. We are in rain but shortly expect to convert to a ice event and then all snow for a while anyhow.

    The big event is the temp drop. We are falling from 70 down to about 9 by sunrise.

    Yeah that temp drop is something serious. My wife told me it's raining very steady in Memphis now. It started snowing at the terminal, and it picked up a little in STL. It's like once I got in Illinois, the snow opened up like crazy

    According to the news. Everything Colorado east will be experiencing an arctic blast for the next 3 days.

    Expecting upwards of 300 record breakers and a foot of snow around the N by NE region.

    They forget how to drive in the snow the entire season, clear in to spring.

    Icing is on the way if not there already.

    I don't know memphis meteorological time schedule but here it's already effectively ice if it's wet. We left 28 degrees heading for 7 by sunrise.

    I have to take one of our cars and slide it on ice to get spouse to library tomorrow. Feasting on steadk salad,s taters, etc et etc and throwing cottonrings and so forth all over the table. Breakfast is going to be something else come morning.

    That way if I slide us off that ice and drown before we both get out, we\ll depart happy. Tee'ed off to be sure, but happy.
