MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. — A couple from Michigan and a man from Chicago were killed in a massive pileup on a snowy interstate in northwestern Indiana, authorities said Friday, as the busy highway finally reopened a day after the 40-plus-vehicle wreck.

This is maybe ten miles from where my sister lives.  I go right through there every time I go to visit her.  In the summer, thanks.

I spoke with her this morning.  She said it was a balmy five below zero on her deck, with a windchill, according to the local radio weather, of 25 below.  She has about a foot of snow on the ground, and more coming down.

She was just finishing her coffee before getting in her car and driving off to her teaching job.  (She’s retired, but now teaches on a consultant basis).

I grew up in Indiana, so none of this seems terribly out of the ordinary to me, but I have to say that right at the moment, I’m glad I’m living in San Francisco, which has been experiencing a string of record high temps all this year.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
