Check out this photo. This is the freeway-cam, looking at Interstate 405.
At 1:42 am this morning.
We had some snow, and the streets were very wet — and there was a rather quick temperature drop which then turned everything to ice. So I guess this is the result. I-5 was just as bad at 1am, but by 1:42 it had started to clear up a bit. I wonder if some of these folks were going home from tonight’s Seahawks game, or even worse, if they were coming home from work and were stuck there for about 5 hours. I don’t know, but it was ugly for hours and hours, at least.
