I am a bit concerned about weather that time of year. Anyone have experience with I70 to I40 around that time. Do I need to worry about ice and snow?
They really don't have space for us and our 2 dogs to stay with them. Should we not take a chance or am I being too cautious?
I don't think you are too cautious. I pulled my Airstream back from Syracuse NY the first week of January this year. I picked a weather window, and went for it.
My advice is to get South quickly as possible. Maybe I-75 to I-40 just south of Knoxville. To be safe I would take I-75 to I-24 at Chattanooga. Then I-59 to Birmingham to Pick up I-20 down to I-10. That would put you well South of the weather. I have learned in winter to pick a window and go.
