The Canada geese seemed to be talking about Madison's first snow of the season

Talking About the Weather
Canada geese in Vilas Park during Madison's first real snow of the season. At least they weren't driving. A couple inches of fluffy stuff started falling during the afternoon rush hour, causing numerous fender benders, slideoffs and rollovers and a few more serious accidents. There always seem to be people who need to relearn each year that the white stuff is slippery.

GORGEOUS photo!
Sadly, I'm never surprised to hear of first-snow driving snafus. One of my favorite parts of working at home is avoiding idiots on the road as much as possible.
