In my little northern NM town, a light, dry snow was drifting down all day, but Temps were hovering around 32, so accumulation was minimal. Around 2:30, the sun came out, everything melted, then at 3 the storm wall pushed in from the west with high winds and driving snow. The roads re-froze and suddenly everyone was driving on sheets of ice right as school let out. In a 15 minute span we were backlogged with wrecks. I worked 2 by the high-school, kids getting out of class and not having enough experience driving on ice to keep it between the lines. When we eventually worked through all the wrecks, there were miraculously no injuries. I'll call that a win.
