Snow squalls began moving through the metro area just after midnight, and immediately began causing problems. I witnessed (but did not capture) an accident at I-64 and I-255 in Caseyville, Illinois, calling 911 to report. Later, I captured 14 loss of control incidents, 6 of which resulted in vehicles colliding with each other and/or the barrier on I-55 at Carondelet. I called 911 for the second time that morning for that incident. This video is linked above and below.
Oklahoma winter storm bust, December 6-8
I took 3 days off of work for this storm, which most models indicated would be a high-impact event for western Oklahoma. But during my drive south on I-44, the models near-completely evaporated the storm. I considered turning around, but I continued on. I figured another model flip-flop was possible, or at the least a minor storm. This didn't happen, and I came home on Saturday with nothing captured despite a brief period of icing that morning.
