Bracing for impact in Tulsa.

Oh yeah, that's where I'm at.

Stay safe, and stay home - I saw how you guys drive in ice, and it ain't pretty! LOL

Back in 73-74 (CRS?) I drove out in January from upstate NY for a six-week training course. Got up one morning and found that an ice storm had dropped about two-three inches of ice. Saw folks spinning their wheels getting off at the lights, then locking brakes trying to stop; saw more accidents in that two mile drive than any two winters in upstate NY!

Went in the back entry to the parking lot up a fairly steep hill and scared the h3!! out of the security guard stopping folks driving down that driveway. Loved having studded tires all around! Closed the plant for two days for lack of power - fun times!

You were saying ...

Well "excuuuuse me!"... LOL...

I've got experience from driving around in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest and chains and all, along with the ice and snow around there... :-)

I know what you mean, but when I see this kind of weather, I want to chain up and go driving around in it... :-)

I've driven across the Rockies in the dead of winter, and across 1,000 miles of packed snow/ice on the Interstates many times (in traveling between Oregon and Texas/Oklahoma... so I can make it about anywhere...

But, even in Oregon, and in Portland, people can go crazy when the snows hit.
