I hope everyone is safe and OK. It is absolutely crazy outside right now in Fargo. I want to walk to the gas station just a block and half from here, but I'm afraid I'd get blown away!

I went out to shovel the drift on my front walk...pure ice underneath.

Ryan and Sarah (Missing7 and wife) I hope you are safe at home instead of driving to Denver! It's not worth it.

Did you see the car seat in the road ? I wonder if someone was thrown out or if it was in the back of that truck.

Yes...I'm home. Parents are in Billings , MT until tomorrow...hope it gets better there :( (Traveling to Sidney, MT for Grandma's 90th bday). So I am concerned about them.

Going to the Gatorbowl on Sat (my buddy is a Miss State fan), forecast is for sun and 75 degrees. I'll be sure to think of everybody. Be safe out there.

Just drove 300 miles yesterday, last 50 were "Blizzard" conditions. It sucks ass not being able to see where the road actually is, and just trying to follow the street signs as they come. (Not a big highway, just 2 lanes, one each direction)

Wow. That's quite rugged of you. Not like it's going to get even remotely close to as cold as you described it. Are you another Texan who came to Colorado so that you could complain about it? Sack up, man, it's winter time in Colorado. You're not even in the mountains. And I thank you for that, by the way. Hilarious!

ok, i admit it. i used "frigid" as a setup for my Hillary joke. you got me.

still... i consider below 0 to more than just "cold". what is between "cold" and "frigid" on your thermometer? tonight, at around 3AM and lasting until 9AM, it's supposed to be 0 or lower here (not counting wind chill). i'm not in the mountains, but i am at 7500 feet. do i get any credit for that?

also, i'm not from Texas, not that there's anything wrong with that.

:~ohyah!:

I'm on top of Monument Hill - are you close by? Tomorrow's high is supposed to be zero. That's cold anywhere. I'm going to Russia at the end of January - maybe it will be warmer there! ;)

I just thought of something..... Do you suppose that is why it is called "The Oval Office" ???

Oral Office would have been too obvious...

Big mistake, IMO. Forecast is for 0 and below tonight and this storm started with a sleet like mixture and then snow on top and I believe he drives that minivan. Not good..

I agree....texted Ryan a bit ago and they are still leaving tonight.
They say they will miss it that way...I say they are driving right into it. :(

I grew up in SD and can't say I miss the winters! Moved to Colorado in Junior High and eventually New Mexico and now Texas. Yeah...as you get older, the less you want to deal with that cold! Brrrrrrrr!

I'd like to thank the woman that honked at me tonight as I slid through a stop sign on my way home from work. Without her honking, I never would have known that I should have actually stopped at the stop sign instead of sliding through sideways and hitting the curb, and from what it feels like, knocking the alignment off.

We've also had a pile-up of an unknown scale. I've heard on the radio early afternoon, I-70 at Peoria was shutdown in both directions

Not worth the stress just to go to a game. IMO.

That would be boring. I love the change of seasons. Get plenty of sun here. I hopped on the bike yesterday and went for a long ride. Leathers help keep the hawk under control!:~ohyah!:

Don't plan on moving there for good. Just slaying some by ass fish and maybe a bit of scuba and snorkeling.

We made it to denver about an hour ago. The roads were actually pretty good except for a couple places between Douglas and Cheyenne. We stopped in Gillette last night and left at about 9 this morning. We made good time from Gillette to Douglas, wasn't much blowing snow at all. And once we hit the CO line, just took it slow and was no problem. Thanks for everyone worrying about us though. I've driven in far worse conditions for far more questionable reasons.

It is really nice having connections all over the country for road condition reports. Being a transportation officer does have a few benefits.
