Sunday Jan. 4, 2014, Kansas City
Well, we lucked out. Kansas City got about 2″ of snow yesterday and it lingers on the city roads. The Interstates are clear and good driving.
Not so much though back early today. We started west of Oklahoma City and it was basically clear with a few wisps of snow. From Oklahoma City north to the Kansas border, the road had travel paths through the wind-blown snow. Frequently the road was completely snow-covered, although lightly. The wind consistently was blowing snow across the snow.
We passed two accidents on I-35 in our north-bound direction. Both occurred only shortly before us. One was a six car pile-up, one was four car. However, when we hit the Kansas border, the road was remarkably clearer. Evidently they were better prepared, or started earlier, or knew their job better. The wind never let up, usually 20 mph with higher gusts.
Nothing much else to report. Home tomorrow.
