I am flying off on Monday to Orange County, LA to get a rear wheel drive Porche Cayman, drive it back to St.Louis.

The fastest way seems to be on I-40 to Memphis, I-55 N to home. However, people warn about snow possibilities.

Is there another way avoiding snow? Further south? Should I just risk it, check into a motel and keep with I-40? I have 4 days, leave Orange County on a Tuesday, get home as late as Saturday. Any more scenic route?

Thanks for your advice.
