Where are the Sierra Nevada Photos? Don't see any

Hi, the photos of the I-80 through the Sierra Nevada don't show up on this thread when I open it. Were the photos taken off, or is there something wrong on my end?

Don't seem to show up for me too. If you look carefully, this thread is extremely old, so it's quite possible that the pictures are no longer available.

I-80 was closed this morning for all traffic near Truckee.

Due to 10 feet of snow dumped in the region

That's understandable. You should see how people drive in Los Angeles at 1:00am. I was doing 90 on the 91 when I was there in November.

Yea, over 4 meters of it!

This kind of snow is what the Sierra Nevada range is famous for (see: the Donner party)

Two killed, dozens of cars in Wisconsin pileups

MADISON, Wisconsin (AP) -- Dozens of cars were involved Sunday in pileups that killed at least two people on a foggy stretch of highway.

Emergency workers at the scene of a multi-car pileup on Interstate 90 near Madison, Wisconsin Sunday.

The Wisconsin State Patrol shut down Interstate 90 east of Madison in both directions, causing a traffic backup of about five miles, according to a Wisconsin State Patrol dispatcher who declined to give her name.

A truck plowed into vehicles that had braked upon reaching a fog bank, causing one pileup, Wisconsin State Patrol Lt. Laurie Steeber said. One person was killed.

A similar pileup three miles away happened when another group of vehicles on the interstate also began braking in fog, Steeber said. A second person was killed in that pileup.

At least three dozen vehicles were involved in the two pileups, Steeber said.

Thirty-five people were taken to Madison hospitals, three with life-threatening injuries, she said.

Two people were discharged from Meriter Park Hospital after treatment for minor injuries, spokeswoman Mae Knowles said. The conditions of the others were unknown.

The Madison area was foggy all day, with visibility of an eighth of a mile or less when the pileup started, said Chris Franks, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sullivan.

For some-odd reason, people just don't respect heavy fog. This is a Worldwide thing, not just here in the USA. There was also a multi-fatal fog pileup on another interstate in Wisconsin a few years ago (I-43 between Milwaukee and Sheboygan).

<sigh...>

BTW, I live about a 1:45 drive from that part of I-39/90 and despite the signs, very slow speed limit (105 km/h) and sometimes heavy police presence, that road drives and behaves just like any motorway in Europe (120-130 km/h and sometimes faster normal traffic speed).

I can imagine that NY's interstates are one of the busiest and therefor one of the most run down. I dont have any statistics to back that up, but 18 million peeps living in the tri-state area doesnt do your roads any good

Most New York interstates and parkways are very old. Maintenance is a problem, since you would create mass traffic jams on those 3 lane interstates when closing one or two lanes for repaving.

It isn't the "Snowy Mountains" for nothing, that's for sure.

I don't think this discussion is productive without pics on the first page. Sad they are gone.
