It was around fifty degrees when I got up this morning with colder possibly freezing weather on the way. It started raining. It is still above freezing. Apparently our ultra-efficient highway guys here in Austin, Texas where we rarely see winter weather had already spread sand on overpasses. Which became wet sand and which became slippery. And, yes, cars skidded and ran into one another. Just had to add that to this long-neglected journal of unintended consequences.
