As I headed to an assignment the temperatures were dropping and it started to drizzle. Soon the alerts started filling my twitter feed as icy conditions covered the county. Portions of the interstate 99 were closed and traffic backed up as crews tried to reach the accidents and slick spots with salt. As I walked towards one of the overpasses with my gear and a safety vest one of the fire cops told me to be cautious on the bridge. As soon as I stepped onto the different surface I slid across the ice. I photographed the scene and shuffled slowly back to my car. The situations where weather professionals and the media suggest folks to stay inside are the ones we still go out in to bring you the news.
