I just had a delivery come in from Oklahoma City to Lawton. The driver of the truck said the roads were currently passable, but the bridges and overpasses were solid sheets of ice and several cars were already in ditches.

  I can tell you this.
Oklahoma is essentially cut off. Accumulating ice was expected for 
tomorrow, but not tonight.
Now, the freezing rain is glazing everything all day today, tomorrow 
and most of Sunday.
Travel is inherently dangerous for this third of the Kingdom.
Driving over 35 mph is becoming impossible.
Power outages and road closures are expected. Most commercial business 
and government offices in Oklahoma City were closed at Noon. I've heard 
that Namron, Skorragardr and Eldern Hills are in the same predicament, 
and NorthKeep and Moonshadowe are worsening as the storm system 
Anyone hoping to make it to Coronation from Oklahoma may find that a.) 
travel is not possible or will take four times the amount of hours to 
make the trip and b.) they will likely be trapped there for some time 
should they arrive safely.

The lack of chatter on the list about this steadily worsening emergency 
situation for Oklahoma has me a little surprised.
This is already a bad storm, and all predictions indicate no 
improvement for the next 72 hours.

I apologize that I cannot represent the title of Premier Bard at this 
event, nor can I formally welcome Their Highnesses and thank their 
Majesties for their service and sacrifice. I will not risk my loved 
ones for this game.
Those of you who insist on making this trip, please, be very slow, 
careful, stock your car with emergency supplies and stay in constant 
contact with your loved ones back home.
