Welcome to Dot managed to escape this six-car smashup on the turnpike near 128 this morning.

Then, barely a mile down the road, he crawled past another, smaller crash:

Turnpike crash

State Police reported multiple crashes, one involving a rollover, on I-495. On the turnpike past 495, meanwhile, MassDOT lowered the speed limit to 40 all the way to the New York line.

The National Weather Service says the tiny little taste of a white Christmas we got this morning will only get worse: Expect more precipitation through Christmas day, in the form of freezing rain.

Who cares about the taxes? Are you saying you’d be ok with icy roads if our taxes were lower?

Massholes will learn to deal with freezing rain and carry/use tire chains.

The only thing good about this is that it's another reason for me not to join the sanity of materialistic shopping madness as a symbol of the meaning of Christmas. Madison Avenue executives won't use me as their bitch.
