Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
This time I think the road crews, God bless 'em, were caught napping. In previous storms, those truck drivers have done yeoman's work, plowing, sanding, salting, treating the road surfaces. But this week their timing was off. They were just that little bit behind the arrival of the snow and ice. And so the driving conditions suffered, especially those Monday rush-hour timespans. The trucks were out there, to be sure, but they got there too late, and they were scrambling to catch up with the snow and ice, instead of being prepared for it. The crashes and spin-outs were not major, most of them, but there were such quantities of them!

It did nothing to help drivers' morale when one car had a rotten TREE, for heaven's sake, crash on the roof and kill both occupants.
