    Folks just get way too antsy in snowy conditions rather than just being really patient and careful.

    The ones early in the video appeared to be doing just that. It was the idiots driving at dry road speeds that caused the pileup.

    The tractor trailer that stopped short and stayed put likely saved some lives.

    Was approaching an intersection yesterday on the way to work. One car and one school bus stopped in the lanes ahead. When I braked, my car just slid . . . approaching the Cadillac. I steered just in-between the car and school bus and the wheels gained traction just in time. Thought for sure I was gonna hit one or both, as I lost braking control. Was nothing like that pileup though. I was probably going about 5 mph. Still scared the crapoutta me. :confused:
