Episode Narrative A shallow arctic airmass moved over north Texas as an upper level storm system moved in from the west. Periods of rain, freezing rain, and sleet occurred resulting in thousands of traffic accidents and numerous power outages. Ice accumulations ranged from a tenth to over a half inch. Indirect monetary damages were over a million dollars with dozens of injuries (indirect).
Event Narrative A portion of Highway 75 was shut down due to a multiple-vehicle accident on the Spring Creek Parkway bridge. The Plano police department reported twenty-six accidents due to icy conditions. Almost all of them caused property damage with only one major and one minor injury (indirect) reported.
