The vast majority of drivers in this region have one driving mode: as fast as they think they can get away with.

Drove east out of Nashville to NC at about 11 AM CST this morning. Glad to get out of there on the leading edge of that mess.

So true. I could not believe the speed some of these clowns were driving given the conditions.

I was down there last week on a marathon trip and was amazed at the amount of road salt. Pretty crazy that same interstate was like that!

Its similar in most states. Snow is especially dangerous in the south because of low exposure on a yearly basis. As a result many vehicles do not have all season tires. Sport tires, snow, and being unfamiliar with driving in Winter conditions is generally a risky endeavor.

Very true. One thing of note... It's not just there in Tennessee. In Wisconsin several winters ago there was a big pile up on Rte 41. People driving WAY too fast for snow covered roads. 40 car, truck and tractor trailer pile up caught on a traffic camera.

I saw a car with Texas plates driving up here today in the icy conditions. Felt bad for the guy.

Ice fog is some nasty stuff too. Experienced that in Alaska.

Well they do watch a lot of Nascar and NHRA. So they like going left or fast. Think I'll stick to WRC.

Luckily Iím scheduled to be off work today and tomorrow.

I went out for a run around 4:45, and it was mostly dry snow; good traction. The problem is that the overpasses are iced over, and many people donít know how to negotiate an icy overpass/bridge.

I saw at least 3 wrecks that had just occurred, and I witnessed a 4th happen right in front of me.

I try to stay off the roads in this stuff. Not worth some idiot hitting me and wrecking my truck thatís never been hit in the 10 years Iíve had it. And the WRX doesnít get driven in bad weather.

To quote Ron Swanson, there is no such thing as bad weather, only inadequate clothing and vehicles.

Stay off the roads unless absolutely necessary.

We only get bad fog in areas near the highways with lots of open land.
