"Tires down to 10 psi"

Does that help with traction or something?
 Quoting: McDewm



I usually run about 45 psi in sand/snow/mud take out about 10 psi..
NOT DOWN TO 10 psi!!!

Yeah gives you a wider traction base and the harder the tire the more slick it is! DO NOT KEEP THEM LOW on pavement only when theres alot of snow down..if they have plowed the streets then dont do it, it will eat your tires up!!

Snow storm to bury Midwest, New England

National Weather Service advisories and warnings are in effect in more than 20 states as a powerful storm gets organized in the Midwest. A blizzard warning is in effect for Chicago, where 12 to 20 inches of snow is possible. Other cities which may experience blizzard conditions include Tulsa, Wichita, Kansas City, and Detroit. Snow is expected to begin tonight and tomorrow from southwest to northeast and continue into early Wednesday.

The Chicago Tribune's Weather Center cautions: "Snowfall totals in excess of 12 inches coupled with winds of 25 to 40 mph will make long distance travel extremely dangerous if not impossible."

Wednesday morning into Thursday, the heavy snow moves through central New York, northern Massachusetts,southern Vermont, New Hampshire and southeast Maine.

Weather.com says the storm may be historic, due to the areal coverage of snow forecast - with upwards of 1 foot likely across a "2100-mile long swath from the Southern Plains to coastal New England."

There's some possibility the storm could be one of the top five biggest on record in Chicago and top 10 biggest in Detroit.

Warm air out ahead of the storm overrunning cold air trapped at the surface is setting the stage for a dangerous ice storm from the Ozarks through the Ohio Valley, northern Maryland, southern Pennsylvania and into northern New Jersey - a 1500 mile swath according to weather.com. The D.C. metro region is at the southern edge of that region and it will be a close call as to whether it receives significant icing or rain early Wednesday.

Jeff Masters at Weather Underground explains the cause of the storm: "A potent jet stream with strong winds will dive southwards over the central U.S. today, allowing a cold Arctic airmass to spill southwards out of Canada. In front of this cold air, a flow of very warm, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico will surge northwards, providing copious moisture to fuel snowfall amounts..."

The storm may not be the strongest of this winter, but is slated to impact 100 million people according to AccuWeather.

On the backside of the storm, frigid cold air is pouring into the northern Rockies and northern Plains. The high in Denver Tuesday is only expected to reach between -5 and -1 degrees. Bismarck, North Dakota is predicted to plummet to -20 Tuesday morning.

Re: Snowmageddon!
OP - local news is now calling for 1" of ice on top of 4-6" of show.

This is going to be one UGLY storm.
 Quoting: McDewm

Will the highways From Kansas City west be driveable by Wednesday night or Thursday? We are from the West but were planning onflying into KC Wednesday, picking up some Business Equipment in KC Wednesday night, and driving it home in a 10ft Cargo truck. Seriously, can we expect services to be open on the road and roads clear enough for travel? 1500 miles to Phoenix. Thanks.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 999600
I would think so, but I hate to even guess. It's supposed to stop snowing by Wednesday early AM. But the temps are going to be crazy cold and driving west out of KC goes almost right into nowhere land. You'll be on I70 right? It's a major highway so I'm sure it'll be a focus with road crews.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 994063



Thanks, actually we have to pick the item up in Salina, then was going to head south to OKC and through Amarillo, etc.

HWY 81 south from Salina looks a little creepy...wonder if its truly desolate and confusing? GPS should help but those things can get wacky...any truckers used to that route? Is it mainly flat? Should we stay off the roads at night, ice etc. I am so spoiled out west, all we have to deal with is hot pavement and some blowing dust :)
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 999600
Not desolate..but, still the middle of Kansas. In other words, the middle of nowhere, lol. You should be okay from KCI to Salina. I can't help you past there though. Maybe someone in Kansas or Oklahoma will check in.

Yikes, a flat roof how easy is it to get up there and shovel that stuff off as the icy stuff weighs a lot more than the fluffy snow ours is pitched and well insulated as we just had the roof replaced and insulation added.

Our lawn mower is converted to a snow blower for the winter and after we finish our driveway, we do our elderly neighbors more often than not, our neighbor elects to do his walkway for the exercise as he too has cardiac problems and needs the workout.

Being realistic upstate New York can have some horrific ice storms and I hope that you will be able to keep your roof clear enough to avoid problems.

Last snow storm we had...all the schools were pretty much closed and roads including I-70 were really nasty and slick but KSU texted me at 6am to tell me classes were still on so I went. This time...seems too risky. Don't even want to walk my 2 & 3 year old next door to the babysitters. If professors try to give me hell or cut my grade I will argue it! It would take a moron to drive 50 miles in blizzard conditions. I hope they understand that. If I were to risk my life to make sure I get a good grade...would they pay in the event I wrecked my car? Would they pay my medical bills if I were injured? Hell no! I don't understand why any schools try to stay open in a storm of this magnitude.

I'm glad you think it's too risky and aren't going to try it. It's just not worth it.

Any professor that would expect you to drive in this has issues, and any school that doesn't cancel tomorrow is asking for trouble. MU and KU are both canceled. Isn't it like the superintendents in neighboring districts? Don't college presidents call each other and make group decisions on canceling school, lol?
