3:40 - 4:10 drive to Bailey
Canyon - clear
Conifer - drizzles and light flurries, roads damp but fine
Richmond hill - snowing, visibility decreasing, roads wet
Pine to Bailey - heavier snow, roads very wet. Drive fine now but will be concerning when it freezes over soon

From Clif B 2hr ago in 285 Traveler
Good morning, 43 is still a bit icy at both ends of the valley light snow covering the rest. 285 has a dusting but there are a few spots that will cause the lower extremities to grab your undergarments, O'MALLEY corner for one, so be aware of that. The upper (south) part of 73 is still snowpacked and a bit slick the rest has a light coat of snow Happy Friday

Good morning, Shelton is snowpacked, 43 is snowpacked at both ends of the valley 285 is just wet until kings valley then snowpacked and slushy 73 is snowpacked till little big horn then mostly just wet, the big issue is the fog visibility down to a couple hundred feet in spots on 285 it lifts at the bottom of Shaffers crossing Watch for wildlife this morning. Have a great day

Don't let the roads or people fool you. 285 is slick. Looks ok, but right after the 1st hill after Myers Ranch going sb, it is slick. I spun out going 35 in 4wd, good tires in 2nd gear going downhill. Others flew by like it was bandimere, then quickly slowed down. Be safe!!
Kristen P 7:37am
It is icy! It looks like somebody went over the edge between come and go and Richmond Hill overpassed. Slow down. There are firemen out on the road. Sheriff on his way nb.
2 other cars on the side of the road.
