They have been closing Interstates and other roads around HOUSTON TX. Because of ice.

The roads didn't close but plenty of crazy drivers out there today and yesterday during the snow storm. You would think that here in Cleveland, home of lake effect snow, that people could handle a snow storm...geez!

I watching this video with amazement and horror.  That must have been very terrifying for anyone that was caught in this icy road.  I have never had a car go out of control before, I have nothing to compare this video to, other than imagination.

My guess was that there was quite an incline to the road, hence the long long slipping of vehicles.  My heart goes out to those people involved.  I bet they got some salt on this particular stretch of road pretty quickly. 

Thank you for taking us into a realm of vision where some of us haven't seen before.  Great day.  Cindi

on the video I was wondering how long it would take for someone to stand at the end of the street and stop traffic, guest they had a quota to fill first then stop traffic from hitting the ice .....

I thought someone else already posted that video somewhere.

Kirk-o and I were pointing out places that are getting ice storms that, hardly ever to never, have any winter weather.

i posted that over on one of the "child boards".  turns out that the guy driving was 79.  got away with just a lac on the head.  it was kind of funny for us.  my husband had just come back from ft worth, tx where the ice was just starting.  the next day, it was snowing here like crazy, but freezing rain in town where that video came from.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
