Ice, ice baby.

This morning, the roads were so slippery that nobody could get anywhere for approximately an hour and a half. It was the strangest thing- at 6:30 am, the roads were fine; from about 7:30- 9am, the roads were a death trap, and since then they've been fine. A city bus and a dump truck collided and ended up in a ditch (no one was injured as far as I know). When the tow truck arrived to pull the vehicles out of the ditch, it was instead pulled in. A police car then arrived on the scene and promplty slid into the ditch as well. I imagine all of the passengers and drivers are still stuck in that ditch- they have lit a fire by now and are busy roasting marshmallows and singing Kumbaya.

apparently a bus couldn't get up kimble either. It just pulled over and waited for the ice to melt.

where was this ditch?

I wouldn't be surprised if it couldn't get up the hill, but it might also be that all busses were pulled off the road when the aforementioned incident occurred. I passed one on Montgomery just sitting there...

Oh, and the ditch was on the Hanwell.
