I like to preach that the safest you can be on the road is not on it at all. Plenty of people have no choice but to drive, so stay out of the way if you can.

The MODOT Weather Map shows that most roads are partially covered, but the snow is just starting. The biggest dangers right now will be ice, high winds and extreme cold.

I wouldn't recommend going places unless it's mandatory.

If you absolutely just have to drive today, for the love of god please drive as fast as possible. Less time you’re on these dangerous roads, the better.

These road conditions make me nervous... that's why I recommend knocking back most of a 12 pack before hand to take the edge off.

I am out bc I had to take a child to the dr. An hour ago they weren’t too bad — not many people out and if you just go slow and brake ahead of time, it was okay. Waiting at the pharmacy now so not sure if they’ve gotten worse but it’s definitely been snowing more in the last hour than before.

Traction wise they’re ok. Visibility is terrible currently. Be careful

I swerved into a pole, not bad. Drivable.

The roads aren't that bad. However, the cold is the real issue. If you did happen to get stuck, it could be potentially dangerous if you aren't prepared for it. I'd stay home if possible.

I drove to work and back today. It wasn't that bad around 9:00 when I left, but after getting to work and seeing the snow just getting worse and worse we decided to close and go home.

It was just me and my boss, and I live north of Republic, so I had to take a lot of highways to get home. Little nervous I have to say haha.

I do have 4 wheel drive so they werent that bad, I'd say if you can help it,.don't drive.

As a Wrangler owner I can only tell myself no for so long.

Edit: not enough snow on the ground to say yes to 4x4 today. Sad day indeed.

It’s not you. It’s the other guy who doesn’t know how to drive on snow you have to wait and slide in You. Stay home if you can.

Wasn’t too bad if you go slow. It’ll probably get worse though as the storm goes on

There were a few slick spots but mostly okay around 11 but the real issue is the cold. My brakes were actually freezing up.

The same thing happened to me when I went to mama jeans to pick up ooey gooey bars.

If you have AWD and good tires. Go below the speed limit and allow enough time for braking you should fine at the moment. Drove from east side of town to Turners station and didn’t have a problem. Definitely be mindful of other people though since you do not know their capabilities. And always if you don’t have to drive don’t as that’s the safest


Hairy_Musician4271 t1_j1c5nyg wrote

Absolutely terrible. Snow is packed down into ice. MODOT said they have nothing to treat roads bc of how cold it is. All they can do is plow and sand busiest roads which isn’t helping much.

The main roads aren’t to bad yet but the side roads are awful


ItsSirTone t1_j1bnuj8 wrote

Side roads are awful. Main roads are iffy. So many left turn lanes are the slickest so stop sooner.

Well don’t drive unless you have to. I needed food and got my favorite thing, and no one even barely had their lights on. Also…I forgot how fun a backend vehicle is. So if you saw me pulling donuts at the mall. Welp. I hurt no one and it was was fun. So just trust yourself and trust no one out there. Be safe.
