Just for the record, last night and early this morning was a different weather phenomenon/system than the snow that came through late morning/early afternoon. I will take any amount of snow over the freezing drizzle that caused the MVA on 285 this morning. I went through appx 30 min before the pile up, and there was a stretch I could tell I had absolutely no control over the vehicle, solid ice underneath. Fortunately I was going slow enough and not many cars around so just let it ride until there was traction again. Not a fun feeling though.

Agreed, wxgeek. Having lived in the southeast for 40 years, I am very familiar with the hazards of driving on freezing rain. I will take a foot of snow over an eighth of an inch of freezing rain any day.
