Loc: It's all about the location.
Happened at our exit off the 400... 96 car pile-up.

Yep, at "Innisful" just south of Barrie. In this kind of weather at this time of the year you wouldn't catch me near that highway especially up in that area. Adrian, you obviously know that geography well, a lot of flat land and farmers fields where if the wind picks up "whiteouts" can occur with little or no warning especially on a very busy highway with lots of truck traffic which can always be a potential recipe for disaster.

Yikes! Amazing pictures. That section of 400 near Barrie has always been scary in the winter. Guess I won't be driving up to visit Axiom until spring. I've also had terrible winter driving experiences on the 401 in Oxford County near Woodstock years ago.

See, this is the flip side of y'all making fun of us for closing civilization when we get 2" of snow.

Yup. Got back down to 25 F last night. Won't be back up to 60 until Sunday. Reports of potential Sleet tonight - maybe 1/2 inch. The Brine Trucks were out yesterday laying brine on the main thoroughfares.

Yet I am way way up north and we haven't had snow in probably 6 weeks and today its -10 and it has been even warmer at times. That crash was unreal, amazing only minor injuries . With traffic as heavy as that it only takes one person to slow down and tragedy ensues.

Chess, did you ever think maybe Nature is trying to tell you to live somewhere else?
