snow and ice

This is for my Australian friends who are in the middle of summer.  We are in the middle of winter and it's finally decided to arrive.  This is a picture of a 193 vehicle accident on a major highway that runs all across the bottom of the state of Michigan. Of those 193 vehicles, 76 are semi-trailer long haul trucks.  One was filled with 44,000 pounds of fireworks and they caught.  This accident happened at 9:30 a.m. on Friday and it's now 11:30 p.m. Saturday and the highway is still closed as the mess is still being cleaned up.  Icy roads and white out snows make treacherous partners.  Sorry to say one person lost their life. It could have been oh, so much worse.        Enjoy your summer! We can't wait!
