Just got home from the mine and the roads are terrible even knowing that we went through the road block sign and made it home safe. More tractor trailers in the ditches of highway 11....lets piled them up.

Road blocked sign? I believe doing that is illegal.

I'm calling Batman to confirm.

At the Driftwood corner, someone flipped the sign to make it look like Hwy 655 was close instead of Hwy 11..... it was our lucky day I guess. We got home safe and that's what matters. Tomorrow is another day.

Ditto.... But six degrees warmer here.[grin

It's not even December yet and seems like the highways up there have been closed a lot already.[think

Wow, interesting photos Risky. Didn't realize how bad the conditions were. I know where that last photo was taken. That house has been abandoned for a very long time.

Smooth Rock to Kap always have the WORST road conditions. Why is that? I could never figure it out.

From my experience I found the straight stretch East of SRF to be really bad in the Winter. And I think around Strickland was bad too but really any part was bad if it was icy and not sanded.
