I'm about to drive from OKC to central TX. I hope the interstates are OK!

The DFW area got very little ice. No problems at the airport. Most of the ice went north of here. I would imagine the interstates are fine except for an ocassional slick spot.

We had ice? Wish I would've known...I'd have been out there chilling my kettle in a snow bank.

The roads in OKC kinda sucked, but they pretty much cleared up as I went south.

My truck had a huge coating of ice on the hood, that didn't melt/blow off the entire way. When I pulled through the gate here, the guard asked me (pointing at my hood), "Where'd you pick up that mess?" I said, "Oklahoma." He laughed and waved me on through.

Oh yeah, I made it from Midwest City to West Fort Hood in 5 hours flat. I'd say the roads were OK.

I went back home a couple years ago. Leaving Austin it was in the 80's. We flew into Minneapolis and it was 12. I was wearing shorts and sandals, should have known better.
