My wife's planning to drive out to Mississippi Tuesday morning, from Athens to Conyers, then I-20 the rest of the way. Do you guys think I-20 will be ok between Conyers and Alabama, or do you think it'll be too icy in the morning?

I wouldnt try it personally. 75 ans 285 are shut down by GDOT. I don't see I-20 being much different. That highway is bad w/o the ice . Personaly I wouldnt go.

The longer she can hold off tomorrow the better.

I20 is closed both directions on the East side and East bound on the west side of 285.

Well, I guess that settles that! Thanks, y'all. Hopefully she can come down on Wednesday instead.

You know, when I was a kid, I loved these snow days where everything got shut down. Nowadays, I'm just worried about road conditions and keeping schedules. I miss being a kid!

Thanks; I wish I'd managed to form closer ties with the 2A community in Athens. They all seem like great guys. I just never seemed to find the right time to do it.

Starkville actually "kind of" reminds me of a conservative version of Athens from 20 years ago with worse roads.

My wife's still stranded in Athens (with family), so I was wondering if anyone has any more recent experience with I-20W conditions.

Looking like we've got to write off the week. Ugh.

Have her wait until after the morning rush and check. Right now it looks as though it's passable if caution is used but waiting until traffic and sun can do some melting from the over night refreeze may be a good choice.

I agree once traffic dies down she should be ok. 20 west Atlanta was not bad yesterday. Afternoon. But I would tell her to wait just a bit to make sure no other problems crept up after the extremely cold night we had last night.

My wife left this morning at 10AM out of Athens. She reported some ice here and there on I-20 through Atlanta and GA, but nothing too bad. She's still enroute in AL, but she says it's fine once you get that far along. Thanks for all your helpful advice, y'all!

I was driving around earlier and things are in really good shape for the most part. Only troubled spots are low traffic shady areas.
