Around here, near East St. Louis, it got really freaking cold one day, and a water main broke across the road. Of course, being that it'* East St. Louis, no one notices, and it freezes over. It then proceeds to snow and covers up the lake of ice.
The next day, on a snow-covered road, a dump truck goes sliding across this ice and totals a Dodge Ram - brand new pickup. I felt sorry for the guy.
I waited 45 minutes that morning as the cops directed cars around the patch of ice in both directions.
