    Going to work this past Saturday in Mobile was like some sort of weird movie set. Every single bridge or overpass had a wreck . I65 was shut down in Satsuma, probably because of the Dolly Parton bridge. Snow and freezing rain in the deep south is Armageddon, I tell you.:biggrin_25521:

    I stay home.

    Armageddon can come and go as far as I am concerned.

    The last ice storm though coming up US79 towards Memphis in MS was a stop at every bridge crossing. It's sloped at a angle downhill. So your trailer gets to jack knife at 3 mph as you inch across. It rubs and slides along the barrier rail. But you will get across. Just be sure to stop prior and let everyone else take a shot at crossing. Especially not between your rig and downslope railing.

    I don't reckon I'll be back there for quite a while. Looks like a lot of wrecks. We saw 18" of snow in October here!

    I'm surprised you all seeing snow. It didn't get cold in utah till last week. I don't even think the ski resorts are opened yet. Only snow up there is man made. Mostly.

    Not much action on the western hemisphere. YET.
