Terrible out on the roads. Be careful.

Bumper cars and spin outs all over 55. It's all black ice.
Rt. 83 was a white dusty snow, but still terrible traction.

Be careful ya'll.

The snow looks like it mainly fell along I-55 and south. The radar shows its moved out of the area.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I nearly avoided an accident on the way in to work this morning - I tripped over the cat in the hallway but the wall caught me!

Same thing happened to me, silly cat was standing in the doorway. Doubled my commute from 15 to 30 seconds.

Technically, that means you didn't avoid the accident.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.
