    Actual freezing fog is pretty much an emergency. Out that way because of the elevation changes which cause temp changes freezing fog can be a possiblity over wide areas with isolated areas of freezing fog. It's no joke.

    Hwy 2 has a dome bridge at skykomish. If there is any debris or snow aside, you’d need to white knuckle it through the center lane. And you have all of the skiiers flying down to Seattle in their teslas doing 110 on the single lane twister.

    It’s not any worse than any other road over the mountains. If I had to pick between 12 or 2 if 90 was closed I’d choose 2 all day long.

    Are you talking about the metal bridge over the river? It’s 14 something. We ran that way with 14 tall curtain vans.

    I came thru there this evening and it's wide open with only the remains of 2 semi's left, and a ditch full of spilled product. One of the trucks looks almost like someone tried to drive thru it's middle.
     
    LameMule, D.Tibbitt and Charlie42 Thank this.
