Found the guy in a lifted RWD Ram doing 75 on overpasses

Still throwing flames?  Not even close, but I had to learn to drive on ice and snow when I got my first job.  They didn't close down for anything.  

I based my prediction off of the DFW media being known for overplaying winter storms.  Maybe they got it a little right this time.

I've always felt they overplay the reaction ("oh no!"), but not the numbers.

When numbers are off, it's because forecasting is not an exact science. no matter where you are

Don’t you have some spam downvotes to throw my way?

I just left a large accident on I-35.   The highways are still a bit slick, but they are improving over time as they are driven on and get treated.   

I still plan to go, but I am coming from Argyle.   This is 100% a personal decision.  

I’m coming from Argyle too.  Was bringing my neighbor and his kids, and my kids, but now looks like it’s just going to be me sans kids.

Only when you make dumbass assumptions about people you don't know.

Since spam is defined as inappropriate or irrelevant, I would say my down vote of your flame throwing comments doesn't qualify as spam.

Armchair experts: What's less likely to send our car to the crusher? Preston or DNT from Plano to 380 and then west on 380 towards Denton or our normal route of Bush to 35 north towards Denton?

Weighing the risk of roads full of lifted 2WD BroDozers on crappy mud terrains through Frisco/Prosper on 380 or the normal narrow I-35 straight but not really straight chaos lanes through Lewisville.

No matter how many connections you have, and insights you own, I can't get past the fact that you've been living in West Texas for a long time now.

This back and forth about today's icy roads seems like such a weird place for you to stand up and stand firm about.

You are right, but I also remember how excited the local media would get at the threat of winter weather.  They would station every available reporter out somewhere on a 635 bridge almost hoping for precipitation.

I am not trying to argue if the road conditions there are safe or not, that is for each person to decide.  I was just replying to the comment about me be the guy in the lifted Ram speeding across icy bridges.  Emmitt would probably be a good source or the TxDot website.

The crazy thing about our weather in this part of the state is that ice will evaporate even when the temperature is in the 20's.  Five or six years ago I was trying to determine if our facility should close early.  At 2:30pm with our parking lot basically resembling a skating rink, I decided to close at 5:30pm.  This would allow folks to drive home safely before dark.  Sent out the notice to everyone and by 4:30pm our parking lot was clear due to the wind and low humidity.  Craziest thing I have ever seen.  Now I just wait until the last minute.

Hope everyone stays safe and GMG!

For those in the Denton area, what are roads like? Is it just highways that are bad or is it everything?

I just made the drive solo to check the roads out, guys I drove from Lewisville to Denton and there isn’t a bad spot 1 not bridges not side roads not highways.  There is hardly even water on the ground.  Please get out and be safe but no reason to not drive to the game tonight.  I’m bringing my family of 4.  GMG

Getting everybody ready. We're leaving around 4:30 to take it slow. If we get to town early, we'll find somewhere to eat. If we don't have any time to eat before the game, what culinary delicacies are the Super Pit chefs whipping up these days? Frito pies and hot dogs?
