    Default tons of vehicles stuck in the ice

    Everything just stopped on i20 from an accident. Two vehicles tried to go up and over the side to the service road. Both got stuck. I got out and helped the second one in a trailblazer.

    I see the storm that passed through here must have made it to you. We've had several days in a row with temperature highs not even reaching 10 degrees....they don't expect us to get above freezing until Wednesday.

    Very nice of you to help out....looks like a mess.

    Just passed a Street that's nothing but a large sheet of ice with a crown on the road so the shoulders are about 2 feet lower than the centerline of the road.

    Looks like someone was driving a porsche and slid about 10 feet off the road with no easy way to get out.

    good grief... My folks are in warner, ok an got 6" of snow and counting. Dug out the sidewalk and found about 1 1/2" of ice under that. You guys are just in one big mess right now. Keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers. Be safe out there

    Why would anyone drive a porsche in the snow/ice anyway??? If it normally doesnt snow and there are no snow tires on it then why even attempt it? Some people have just too much money and just make me shake my head
