Weren't highway crews out salting the roads anyway? If not, why not? Icing warnings were posted on every weather site all day long yesterday.
Big rig rollover at Texaco Town, driver trapped in cab

A tractor-trailer accident is reported in Texaco Town. The driver is semiconscious and has an arm injury. He needs to be extricated. They need a small ladder to get up to the cab and pop the door open. The roadway is "extremely slick." Fuel is leaking; the product being hauled is unknown.
Sheriff's deputies are on scene along with Pavilion fire and Mercy medics. The junction of routes 20 and 63 will be closed; Bethany fire is asked to shut down southbound East Road at Route 63. As in several places in the county, highway maintenance crews are requested to salt the roads ... "It is nothing but a skating rink..."
I'm sure theres some lame excuse as to why. There always is i think the most popular one is that they wait to see if the weatherman is actually correct in his predictions.
That's exactly why I "asked" if they were or not. Thanks, Billie.
