re: What’s the latest on I-10/I/-12? - Duke
We're warming up fast. We'll get to freezing by nokn, if not sooner, and should push up to about 40. You typically need a couple of hours above freezing with the sunlight to get the raised surfaces unfrozen. So I'd bet about 3 pm today....

re: Anyone's car/truck batteries were pretty weak when started? - Duke
