Started to job at 615am, traveling south on Hw48, towards Durant,OK. Got 5miles in 20 minutes. Black Ice with no letup. Finally swerved into a large gravel area and slowing got the vehicle turned around and called in to job. Got home safe but hey.. getting tired of sitting around at home, and the lack of pay.
Freezing rain still drifting down as I type..and temps are going down, not up.
Drive an older model Honda, front wheel drive, yet light enough to slip and slide quite easily.
Check the highway report, DPS, and seems the ice is spreading.
Have not found any other weather bloggers in the area so thought I would add a note about the 'mess' in this area.
When I called job, they seemed surprised by my travel report; they also did not receive any of the snow mass our burg did on Friday the 7th.
I only travel 30 miles to job; amazing how much different the weather is in one local or the other.

Black ice nothing to play around with ..

got 8 inches of snow the other day and the airport only got 4 .. difference of about 20 miles makes a huge difference in what weather you can have ..

Stay safe driving out there !!
