Travel safe Michelle. The suggestion of heading South first and then East sure seems like a good one. You are going to hit ugly weather regardless, but improving the odds of good weather sooner is always a plus in my books. Which ever route you take, there's always a forums member or more who will likely provide suggestions for their area.

Take care,
Barry

Yup - I'd head south, too. No sense not enjoying the trip.

Michelle, we all shudder, recalling your exit from Yellowstone last winter. Please reconsider before you head east across the mountains and windy plains in storm mode. We are even looking for some effects of this system Sunday into Monday here in Missouri. From the sounds of it, we'd not choose to head out in it short of some unplanned emergendy requiring it. Always cliche, but just as always true: better safe than sorry. Best wishes for fright-free travels from all your forum friends. See you in Florida...no ice or snow forecast for New Year's week there! ~G

There is going to be no trip towards Yellowstone. The roads up there are closed and the roads leading to it are snow covered.

I am goign to have to look at the road conditions in the morning. I may be waiting a day.

I think you should stick with plan C, but don't delay! If you go north and stay under that artic high that's situated in the northern plains you'll be OK until Monday. There will be snow moving from south to north from Iowa, but if you delay you might get caught by the next low coming up from the gulf.

Worst case you can hole up in St Cloud until it clears.

ya mean like in MAY?

with a high of ZERO expected in fargo today...

only a frozen loon would consider going cross the inland sea right now...

get to vegas baby!

drift down to i40 or i10 if needed then wander east.

it may add 500 miles of driving but you will offset that cost in lp gas saved...

and avoid ALL of the other pleasures of traveling over ice cubes...

as you near your destination...

don't do this...

cheers

The only safe and dry roads from west to east are from Billings to Minneapolis on I-94. Yeah, it's cold, but if you get in trouble someone will stop to help you.

We take care of each other. And we know how to read a weather map.

Plan D,
We left Boise this morning and headed northwest, turned north this afternoon and are currently courtesy parking at AS of Spokane this evening. Fuel up the truck and propane in the morning and head east on I90 to Billings then I94. We are hoping to make it through Montana tomorrow.
St Could, MN on Monday. After that I need to see what the weather holds. Turn south or continue on 94 then 80 and down to the factory.
