    I'm in the city and it's a nightmare. I can't believe as bad as it is in New York our mayor still kept the public schools open.

      I took the above photograph yesterday on my drive home on the interstate. The maximum safe speed limit at the time of my drive was about 20 mph.

    Ours are great at this moment. I feel bad for all of you that have to battle the awful road conditions out there.

      You are  very fortunate THarman7. In the above photograph it took me 2 hours and 45 minutes to drive what normally takes only 45 minutes to drive.

    We are lucky with wind and rain only. With a bit of luck snow and ice will mis us this time around. I live in the Netherlands

    The road conditions are good, some rainy and windy days but nothing enough to limit the speed limits or any restriction.

    The worst part about the road conditions in my city are the holes in the tar and they aren't even so bad. We just have to deviate a bit.

    From Lisbon, Portugal.
    We have less than one snow fall every two years, and the snow disappears in less than one hour. Pretty warm city after seeing your picture,

    Good luck on these snowy days.

    My conditions are different to all of those listed here. I live in the tropics where it is 30°C (87°F) year round. Our road conditions are bad because of pot holes. When it rains, the tarmac washes part of the road away leaving massive pot holes. When it is repaired, it is never done correctly and so you end up with a bump. Had I known this when I first arrived, I would have opened a shock absorber store. LOL. The roads look like a patchwork quilt with all the repair work.
    Throw in wild donkeys, free grazing cows, goats and pigs and no sidewalks for pedestrians driving conditions are ......adventurous.

    For once, the weather was beautiful today. We are suppose to have some freezing rain in the morning. I'd rather have snow than ice. I already had one car accident because of the weather this year. Best just to huddle at home and stay safe. One thing for sure, I will never again complain about the heat in July or August.

    I knew it yesterday afternoon when the traffic was saying,"It is okay to drive". The snow on the roads had melted and turned to water, and then slush when the traffic came home. I said to myself, "That is going to freeze tonight and become black ice". This morning the traffic reporter was talking about accidents and black ice all over the place.

      Oh, and the weather is talking about rain tonight when the temperature is going down into the 30's again - you know what that means!

    It's a snow day where I am today.. We just got about 10 cms of snow dumped on us overnight and it's still snowing as I type... I won't be leaving the house today. The roads look to be cleaned up relatively well but my car is currently buried and I just don't feel like digging it out today. smile

    I live in Utah. Right now, it's nice and sunny. When it snows the snowplows are usually quick and do a good job. As far as traffic goes, overall it's not too crowded, but there are certain places that it's nearly impossible to change lanes.

    Right now they aren't bad, but with Winter fast approaching that will soon all change.
