Road conditions were worse last night from anywhere from 10pm on. Its better now. Snowpac is actually affording more traction now then the sheet glare ice found everywhere last night.

I'm just on all seasons like I have been my entire life. No fault accidents had for 30yrs.

People seem to be driving sensibly today. There were some real idiots on roads last night. Traffic lights and stop signs mean nothing to some drivers.

Just a reminder to all three things that are harder in these conditions. Stopping, starting, turning. For anybody less experienced at driving
if you're not used to these road conditions don't drive.

Also avoid hills, possibly avoid freeways, highways or henday. Typically can get bad under these conditions.

Also, I find this helpful before heading out;
