yeah, Motrctyman called me a few minutes ago and said that his wipers can't keeep up with the sleet on his windshield and that it was really icy and slick.

Be careful if you have to go out today. If it doesn't get better, I'll postpone my dentist appointment at noon today.

Default mess at Dixie and I-75

I was not too far behind the mess on I-75 at Dixie at 8:45a. I was being careful going northbound, but it iced up fast right at M-15... There were lots of vehicles involved.

Interesting.. I had almost no slick spots on my drive today. I drove down Lapeer road past brown at about 8:50.

I was driving slower than most, and anticipating ice, but never really had any issues (one lane change felt funny, so I assume there was ice between the tracks, as steering input didn't match yaw angle of the jeep...). I didnt' see anyone in the ditch, though. My driveway was ice and the jeep was coated..

From Royal Oak to Dearborn, between 7:30 and 8:00 AM, no ice/sleet at all. Just a bit of drizzle, and slow ass drivers on the Southfield.
