We have 14" right now and still coming down... Roads are NOT passable. We are all camped out here at work to handle any calls that come in.

I would wait at least 6 days to get roads passable! Then you have to deal with salt under your RV and having to clean/ neutralize it!

Really don't want to get stuck in VA at truck stop because roads are impassible. We will be driving up 95 to DC then 270 to Frederick MD, then 15 to East Berlin.

Weather report shows I should be good up into SC tomorrow. The unknown areas are above SC where the will have got snow.
Let's see now. For at least the last week every weather channel has been forcasting a major snow event, especially around the NC, Va, DC, MD, and Pa. areas. Soooo, you've had a week to see and hear about what the conditions would be this weekend.
And, to top it all off, you live in Pa, where you should be familiar with snow and crummy road conditions.
And now you want to get on a major interstate, in the middle of a snow storm, with blizzard conditions in the area where you are heading.

I hear DE roads are restricted to Emergency workers and snow plows only. PA has a no empty tractor trailers, tankers, and a few other types of commercial trucks. Also included is no travel trailers and motor home restriction on its roads. Not sure when either will be lifted.

I would also advise to wait it out a few days. I'm in North central Florida, and it is windy / ugly / cold as heck here!

Pulling a TT in this is just not safe!

you are very correct. Someone needed to say it. Completely foolish (putting it nicely) to even consider it.

If you go online to Virginia 511 Web, you can see traffic cameras of Virginia's highways and SEE for yourself, the current road condition at that location. There are hundreds of cameras along all the major highways, especially in the eastern/northern parts of Virginia.

It's really cool!

I don't know about 95 in NC but I'm hearing 40 in NC is a mess. Lots of ice still on the highway. I was supposed to tow to Raleigh this weekend for service. We are not doing that. We are opting to wait for better road conditions and that is highway the whole way for us.
