The freezing rain started right about 11:30 last night and the sleet started mixed in with it at 1:30 a.m. here.
Both are still coming down pretty good.
There is enough sleet on the roads that you can't see the lines in many spots, in fact only can see them in a few spots.
15 minute drive took me 40 this morning.
Not too bad as long as you keep your foot out of the gas and off the brake.

'course other people are alot of the problem but there aren't many out at 4:00 a.m. :super:

Be careful out there.

Yep the youngest made a 5 minute trek into his would be 30-minute drive, came back white as a sheet. He said he tried 2WD, 4WD and the only success was to basically coast lol. He’s driven on ice and snow some since he was 15, said this was the worst for him. Needless to say he’s staying home now that he’s made it back. Be safe folks!

It is bad here in Paducah Ky. My yard and driveway "looks" like it's covered in 1/4 to 1/2 inch of snow when in fact that is sleet. The snow is just now starting and will keep on coming down until about 3 PM. Not a good day to be out on the roads at all.

I got to work about 4:30 this morning and very few spots on the Martin highway you could see the lines.
My buddy just went out to his truck and said we have well over an inch on the roads now.
He said it was alot worse than when we got here and coming down real hard now.

Bout time to call it a day and go make some hot chocolate and watch tv. :D

That's how mine looks just more white and I'm on a major highway but it's solid white with sleet.

Haven't ventured over to Hot Springs yet since I've lived in AR but plan to soon. I hear it's really nice. Have fun.

BTW are you scared to drive on sleet and ice so you made your wife drive ? :poke:

You must go to Hot Springs. It's a great weekend trip. We go with friends and get a condo on Lake Hamilton every few months to just relax. Heck if you ever want to get over that way let me know maybe we can meet up at some point.

Lol no I actually grew up driving in this crap because most of my family is from Michigan so we'd visit and I was always the driver. It was sink or swim! My buddy is driving their car (we drove last time) because his wife got a new Volvo that's all wheel drive. He's dealing with the roads and I'm enjoying the seat warmer!
