Update to Snow, Ice, Slush

Left home about an hour and a half early this morning; took a bit more than an hour to get here.

Driveway snowy but with traction; subdivision street icy but mostly with traction except at the bottom where the ABS brakes kicked in and I remembered to just mash them down and let them do their job.

Street from subdivision to secondary road somewhat icy.

Secondary road to main road almost completely clear and dry except around the curves (go figure!).

Main roads up to campus almost completely clear and dry, with one exception coming through Maryville/Alcoa. But I drove slowly and carefully and didn't have any trouble.

The two streets off Kingston Pike to my parking lot were snowy and icy, but not too bad.

My parking lot is solid icy snow, but again, slow and careful. I almost parked in my regular spot (straight in from the driveway, no turning needed), but reconsidered that I might not want to be in front of the driveway if someone came in a bit too fast, so I proceeded to the far end of the lot. Now I'm just waiting for the snow to melt so I can get a ticket for not being within the lines.
