Are you sure that's not the set of next season's Walking Dead?

A lot of accidents on the turnpike today. I drove by one of the entrances and even that was backed up.

Ouch.

I've driven through there many times back when I used to do a lot of consulting work.

I notice that one of the trucks in the middle of the pile-up was a propane truck. Wonder how much the driver worried when he started to slide? If this was a hollywood scene and not reality, that would have turned out really different.

What is that white stuff? Apparently, it creates havoc.

This is from a few weeks back, northwest of Milwaukee. Traffic camera caught this pile-up in progress. Skip to about 5:00 to see one vehicle take a bad situation and make it much, much worse.

Jerks ruining it for everyone.



Thankfully, it was on a Sunday. It was crappy out. But, watching that vid some people drive like morons (stun). Clearly, the semi is stopped and visibility wasn't all that bad and you have a guy flying at least 50mph into the fray. Geez.

Phew! I'm glad I live somewhere where snow isn't a problem. Oh...wait...

I used to work at a ski resort here in Utah. In the summer, work/service vehicles would use the cat tracks to head up the mountain for work or delivering stuff.

Earlier in the day, a propane truck delivered a load to one of the mid mountain restaurants. I was coming down one of the cat tracks in a work truck when I came upon the propane truck. It tried to take a sharp turn without doing 4 point turn. There was a big turn around spot on the track. The truck had partially gone off the edge. The front of the truck went off the road.

We had to have one of our front loaders come down the track and attach a tow chain to the truck to get it back on the road.

Needless to say, seeing a propane truck partially off the road was a bit of a pucker factor.
