road conditions

We are driving from Phoenix to go to the Polar Express on Wednesday 12/17. I see it is calling for snow 4-8 inches. Will it be safe? What are the road conditions like going that way?

They have been really bad today and yesterday. All of my neighbors including myself did not go into work today and we all work in Flagstaff. All I can suggest is to call 511 and keep an eye on the weather channel.

Will it be safe?

Well if you are one of those people who think because they have an suv and 4 wheel drive and can go 75 mph then no it won't be safe. But if you don't mind driving 25 mph and it taking 4 hour to get there then it will be fine. Just use common sense. The roads will be really tricky once you get to Munds park on I-17 until you get to Williams on I-40. Just pack plenty of water and food and blankets and drive slow and allow plenty of time. If you leave durring the midday you will be ok.

It took me an hour going 40 mph Monday night because of the ice and visibility was 1/4 mile or less.

Just be careful your destination isn't going anywhere.

Thank you for your advice!

We aren't use to driving on icy/snowy roads. We do have an SUV and wouldn't mind going slow, but I think we better play it safe and forego the Polar Express. Kids will be dissapointed but better safe than sorry!
