Default Curse Of the White comes Back !!!

Look at this, for those in Michigan you already know, But I was 5 minutes ahead of this on 131, then turned around and assisted at it. Im glad I made it out of there before all hell broke loose.

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.
