Ok have talked with two people who was on I-35 in Olathe area saying 35 is very slick with lots of stalled cars and so forth.

Julie sent me this
julie: Accidents all over I35. I had to get off at 119th because there were cars that had spun out and were blocking the highway.

So one needs to use caution out there.
