I need to drive on I-440 to get to a meeting monday morning. Has anyone driven the highway since the storm? What's the condition like? i am so nervous about driving as the roads in our subdivision are covered in ice!

I-40 from S. Saunders all the way to Johnston County was fine in the wee hours of this morning. At least one lane was plowed, or had decent tire tracks worn through the snow. I went about half the speed I normally would, and everything was fine.

From what I've seen near my house, people are getting around okay. Just go slow.

But, as some of this stuff melts in the sun right now, it'll freeze back tonight, so tomorrow morning could be a completely different story. If you're nervous already about driving, then I wouldn't recommend it.

WRAL has links to traffic cams on their website, so you might want to go to WRAL.com and click on traffic. There are multiple cameras on the map--I clicked on the cameras yesterday to see what the major roads and intersections looked like.

Do you have any way of confirming the meeting prior to Monday morning? I suspect many businesses will, at the very least, be on a 2 hour delay on Monday. All the area public schools have already cancelled classes for Monday, as well as a some of the area colleges (Durham Tech, Wake Tech, and several others have cancelled classes for Monday).
