It's nasty out there, University Place.

If you don't have to drive, don't.

But if you do, some roads are obviously better than others. I've opened this forum - I guess you can call it that - for us to share routes, tell what roads to avoid, etc.

Share your stuff in the comment section. Better yet, if you have a picture of your neighborhood street, please feel free by visiting the .

So c'mon, UP. Let's help each other out today.

Here's what Public Works Director Gary Cooper wrote to city leaders:

Staff have been doing everything we can on the roads, they are very slick with compact snow. We are expecting four more inches by 10:00 this morning with an additional 2"-4" throughout the night. While liquid deicer works well on ice, it does not perform well while snow is still falling.

Our Crew is concentrating on the Arterial hills- Bridgeport and 67th Ave. near Fred Meyer,  Cirque Drive between 67th Ave & Orchard, 40th Street between 67th & Bridgeport Way. We also are keeping 37th St. at the Fire Department plowed and sanded for emergency services.

We will continue to do our best but I do not expect any significant
improvement in road conditions until mid day tomorrow.
