I-15 south traffic jammed between Las Vegas and California

Better have plenty of Gas in the Tank and White Castle Burgers in the Trunk.



Traffic leaving Nevada and heading into Southern California was backed up about 16 miles before 8 a.m. Sunday, traffic cameras showed.

Live cameras angled at traffic on southbound Interstate 15 showed heavy traffic from Jean to Primm, just past the Nevada-California state line.

The Regional Transportation Commission has advised that peak traffic hours Sunday would be from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Drivers can expect delays up to an hour and 40 minutes, the RTC said.

Hundreds of flights canceled as Midwest braces for snowstorm



and there is the Midwest just talked to my mom in Kansas so far she got 4 inches on the ground and can not get out of the driveway because of blowing snow. I think I rather be stuck in traffic on the I15 at least it is sunny.



A winter storm blanketed much of the central Midwest with snow on Sunday at the end of the Thanksgiving weekend, bringing blizzard-like conditions that grounded hundreds of flights and forced the closure of major highways on one of the busiest travel days of the year.

“It’s going to be messy,” said Todd Kluber, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service who is based in suburban Chicago.

With much of the central plains and Great Lakes region under blizzard or winter storms warnings, roughly 600 flights headed to or from the U.S. had been canceled as of 2 p.m. Sunday, according to the flight-tracking website FlightAware.

Most were supposed to be routed through Chicago or Kansas City — areas forecast to be hit hard by the storm.

Strong winds and snow created blizzard conditions across much of Nebraska and parts of Kansas, Iowa and Missouri. The National Weather Service was warning those conditions would make travel difficult in places.

By mid-day, the blizzard warning was extended to parts of the eastern Illinois near Chicago, where snow is forecast to fall at a rate of about 2 inches per hour.

Other parts of central plains and Great Lakes region were under a winter storm warning, that could see a foot or more of snow dumped in some places by the end of the day.

In eastern Nebraska, part of Interstate 80 between Lincoln and Omaha was closed Sunday morning because of multiple accidents after snow blanketed that area. That included semitrailer trucks jackknifed across the highway. It was re-opened by Sunday afternoon.

In Kansas, Gov. Jeff Colyer issued a state of emergency declaration. The action came as a large stretch of Interstate 70, spanning much of the state, was closed between Junction City and WaKeeney.

Separately, a portion of Interstate 29 was shut down in Missouri, near the Iowa border.

As much as a foot was expected in Chicago. Between 4 to 6 inches of snow was expected in the Kansas City area. Forecasters predict more than a foot of snow is likely in southeast Nebraska, northeast Kansas, northwest Missouri and southwest Iowa.

By Monday morning, the storm was expected to hit parts of northern Indiana and southern Michigan.

Kluber said the storm was expected to hit the Chicago region sometime Sunday evening. He said rain will give way to heavy snowfall and “near whiteout conditions” that will make for dangerous travel.

All we get here on the Oregon coast is a wind warning for tomorrow. Up to 60 MPH where I live. Not unusual. I've lost 3 wind gauges in the last 9 years. They were there, working fine, then when the wind gets to 100+, they vanish. Oh well...

My Lady and I just returned to Kansas during this storm. I will write a separate post on our trip, but here is a teaser (Sunday about 1300 outside of Kansas City).

After living in Kansas City for about 10 years plus your picture is a great reminder why I moved to Arizona.

We were wimps.... We managed to arrive at home before the worst hit.

Real SLK drivers would have driven around town for a few more hours for fun before calling it quits.

With the top down....

I used to drive from SoCal to Phoenix on I-10 after 3 and 4 day holiday weekends. On the West-bound side, traffic would be stop and go all the way from LA County to a couple miles East of Indio, while in our East-bound side there was little traffic. From that point on towards Phoenix, we would see West-bound drivers driving 90-100 miles an hour, tailgating and weaving in and out among cars driving closer to the speed limit. We would chuckle knowing in a few minutes they are going to be idling along for the next three hours.
