    What a letdown! I was hoping to see an ice covered road. You have to click the "Related Stories" link to get the good stuff.

    Probably an inappropriate response ... but I could not help from laughing at the mental pictures of this chaos. At least no one was seriously hurt.

    Similar thing happens around here when people with their "set it and forget it" automated sprinkler systems forget to turn it off during freezing weather.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.

    In some area's it's illegal to do that any time of the year. My real question however is just what the heck was he thinking that now's a good time to do that?? Doesn't he know it's cold outside???
