It was in the low 50s w/rain today. That warm, moist air coupled with the snow on the ground, made for some pretty thick fog.

Sheesh, I just got back from class. When I went to class at 2:30 (IN time), it was 45-50 and raining, I come out at about 4 and it's snowing. Like a famous comedian said, "80,20,30,50, It was weather by cybil, it was ****in' weird"

After it was all said and done, there were over 200 vehicles involved, including 80 big rigs. Wish I had a tow truck. lol

If we're thinking the same guy....

There was snow with lightning behind it, I thought it was the f'ing apocolipse!

Not quite, but another applicable quote.
