Talk about, report, and complain about weather here. It does not matter where you live. Talk about what you got. Snow, wind, hail, storms, virga, meatballs. Give information about what city is close to you. Pics are great too.

The map can be used by anyone and moved to your area. It is customizable for you and gives a lot of information.

Welp, our forecast says a foot or more of snow starting Sunday evening, on top of the ice that's already here. Good times. :-)

JFC... and the real shitty thing is there's just no where to go. Not that I know how long that stretch goes on that highway, but I can't think of many highways like that in KC, except for 169 near downtown and maybe parts of 69 and 435 in OP, where there's very little shoulder and just no way to even attempt to get out of the way.

ice sucks. I also assume Tx does not do salt.
I think they do to an extent, they donít get ice often in DFW but often enough that they should know not to drive like normal conditions

From what I read, the accidents occurred on a bridge which freezes faster. Whenever I cross a bridge in those conditions, I do not press the brake. Might not have mattered.

I am not sure of the whole situation, but this did occur in TX, where people don't know how to drive on snow or ice. I am not sure if it would mattered. Crazy Germans drive on the Autobahn in dense fog at eleventy billion miles an hour and wonder why there are pile ups.

When we went down there, we were on the bridge next to the lake south of Denton. There was a Ford LTD on the front side of the bridge facing me. He had spun completely around on the bridge and was driving the wrong way on the interstate.

Texas does not salt. TxDoT typically uses either sand or sprays deicing fluid on bridges and overpasses.
Speculation is that this particular bridge was not properly treated with the deicing fluid. Time will tell.

If it's the same shit they use here, it makes it worse rather than better, at least with snow on it.

Followed a salt truck into work this morning.

It was -16. Salt rarely works and the exhaust water from cars freezes on the highway making it very slick..

This was this morning. We always talk that southerners do not know how to drive in the snow. But many here do not take ice seriously or don't try.

If he would have gone off, he would have died. He is on a bridge
