The Nixle alert on that already went out. The whole freeze over from the current 62 degrees is going to be interesting. ;-)

My ride home from work in Fairfield along Route 80 tomorrow morning at 7AM should be interesting. With the rain washing all the salt off the roads it will be interesting to see if road crews can get the salt down fast enough in the morning before the flash freeze.

Don't worry I'm sure they'll oversalt the living hell out of every road

The wind helped to evaporate the rain that did fall.

IT was 62 when I woke up this morning around 6:30
