Rain/ice mix caused 50-car pileup in Shelton - The Connecticut Post Online
Like we say in New England, one snowflake and everyone forgets how to drive. I guess this is on a much grander scale.
I was on this section of road a few months ago. Seemed perfectly safe to me.
Local weather: It snowed four days ago, and it started raining at about noon. The rain is gone, but the roads are still wet, and it'* still a few degrees above freezing. The highways are still covered in a very thick fog, though.
