My work parking lot looked amazing. I felt bad driving on it. It looked like a lake.


On a side note, after spending 12 days in 80 degree+ weather, this sucks ass.

Poor baby. After spending a week hovering around 0 degrees, this feels like 80

I like hitting my top while I'm driving and watching all the ice slide off it, that is when nobody is behind me of course

Roads were fine, just wet.

Slushy and a little slow - took about 10 minutes longer than normal.

Close schools? I don't see it.

Maybe, maybe not. With everything locked together and sliding you're more likely to lose directional control.

I drove last night from Westland to Dearborn Heights, all of 20 mins, and it was fun driving by everyone . I was looking forward to the drive this morning to work, Dearborn Heights to Livonia, but work called the day off. SO now I got the whole day to play!

There is a massive power outage that is almost a perfect square from just past your house, to dixie/m15 to pine knob to walton/clintonville.
