Sorry to those who had power outages and water outages.

And if you are not used to black ice /snow/slush or what not, definitely stay home. The pileup in TX was insanity (esp bc most were going way too fast for conditions). In the videos, the black ice was obvious to me because we deal with it but I think the people on that hwy thought it was just wet (a common mistake).
Our roads are covered in calcium chloride... works great but wreaks havoc on vehicles.

They use alot of sand too but mostly for traction not really for melting anything though.
