Arden-Sweet. Good luck.
The rest of you: I call FOUL and FALSE ADVERTISING. I woke up to see ice on my Notre Dame flag? Actually it cracked me up. What was scary was not the road conditions, but the other drivers to this native Ohioan.
More news: The wife is for sure staying here, but I got an interview offer I can't refuse over the weekend up in Lima Ohio for a forensics teaching position this week. Sucks that I just got here but not the first time we've been apart for careers.

Glad to hear about the business Arden. Sounds great!

A little of the white stuff showed up here in S-ville.

Nice picture! We didn't get any snow, ice only.

Looks like most area schools have canceled and I am seeing more and more power outages reported on Facebook around the area. If the freezing rain keeps piling up on my truck, the KLR may be my only way to get to work!!! (Doors already frozen pretty good and windshield is almost an inch thick.)

The problem with you snow rookies is no yellow lettering..lol
I kid, actually be careful today. In prep for my drive back up north, I have to find my emergency winter driving kit, carry blankets, heating packs, shovel, scraper, water, food bars, etc.
I'm jealous of you guys that can hit a lot for donuts today!

I almost took the KLR today, just so I would not have to deal with this:



A few bridges on the trace were icy, so I did a full side drift (on purpose) but the cars ahead and behind me were not as amused as I was... Cars were slowing down to drive through WATER PUDDLES. Temp on dash and bank signs said 34*F...

At the insistence of my wife, I took her truck today since she was off with the kids. I can safely say my hands got a hell of a lot colder scraping ice off the truck windows than they would have if I'd ridden. I'm pretty disappointed that I didn't run into any ice. I would have been fine on a bike, and now I've got to put up with a day of bullshit from folks at the office asking "What, you didn't ride today?"
