EC Road Report

Once we dug out the cars this afternoon I thought I’d take the SUV out for a little reconnoiter of the road situation.

In a word, it’s bad.
I made it out to College Avenue around 2:30. This is what it looked like. In fact this is what all the roads looked like.
This is New Cut Road near the intersection of New Cut and Hillsborough.

The bottom line, unless you have four wheel drive you’d be nuts to drive these roads. Even with four wheel drive you have to weigh the risk that you could still hit ice and slide off the road. It’s not real easy to tell where the shoulders are.
