I will probably head South today, the travel forecast is the best for the next 2-3 days but road conditions in Texas as still awful and I no longer drive that far in one day. The forecast for Nebraska and Kansas is 1-3 inches of snow beginning late tonight. The forecast for Sunday in OK & TX is freezing drizzle. These are the options I am considering using Mitchell SD as a starting point.
1. 81 South to York NE and stop for the night, still 8 hours from home and known dog friendly motel with outside doors so I can plug in my block heater.
2. Same route except stop for the night in Salina KS, about 6 hours from home but some driving after dark which I do not like but 4 lane divided all the way to IH 35.
3. IH 90 East to Sioux Falls then South on IH 35 as far as I can get. This route is a good bit further but interstate all the way.
I have no need to be home until Monday afternoon which, given current road conditions in North Texas might be a good thing.
Any opinions, suggestions, and/or updated road conditions would be greatly appreciated.
