Todays event:  The salt used to de-ice the road didn't work.  Leaving the road icy.

To top it all off:  Those people involved in the accident plus the other drivers who had to wait hours in backed up traffic, until it was safe, still have to pay the toll for the crossing.  

The shit's going to hit the fan.

Update: All drivers with damage done to their cars from the falling ice bombs have to come up with their deductible to get their cars fixed.
