Hi all... I am so glad I found this board. Here is the situation. My self, hubby and our 2 dd's are traveling from Denver to Las Vegas this Friday. We planned to leave Den at 5am. However the weather has been really crappy up in the mountains and right now roads are icy, snow packed and some areas have mandatory chain laws in effect.
Here is my question... looking at the weather forecast we really donít expect snow coming down on Friday while we are driving... but it will still be cold and I donít know what to expect of the roads (will they be icy, snow packed still?!?)... Should we take the normal i-70 to 1-15 via the mountains which is about an 11 hour drive or should we do the southern route i-25 to i-40 through Albuquerque and parts of Arizona... this is a 14 hour drive?
So itís a 3 hour difference, but I believe much safer. What would you do?? Why?
