Default Whiteouts, Blackouts, and Death - Montreal News Story

http://www.canada.com/montrealgazette/news/index.html

I hope this link works. This is the front page of the Montreal Gazette today, with the story of yesterday's rain/ice/wind/snow storm and it's aftermath.
The picture of the pile-up on the highway is incredible. The whiteouts and the hurricane force winds were unbelievable.

Those of you living in Florida, stay there!

Hey RollerD, saw it on national news last night. Pretty tragic.

Well RD, it was not that bad here but we have had our share of the pileups, mostly due to stupidity of the drivers. I am so ready to go home and I AM at 7pm today if I HAVE to crawl out the front door to my house.
