Let's establish a few things right off the top.  Friday's storm was a monster.  Rain, freezing rain, sleet, snow.  The snow fell rapidly.  Wind whipped it around.  It was impossible to keep up with the snowfall.


Thousands of people found themselves stuck.  Trapped by crashes and horrible conditions on the interstate highways.  Highways closed.  People couldn't move for hours.  I am amazed that no one died.

This has happened before.  Every time, the state says it will investigate so this never happens again.  Yet, it continues to happen.

We have to face one simple fact:  if we get hit by an out of the ordinary snow storm, the state can't handle it.
