It looks like an unlucky place to have parked a car in Plano, Texas. "Oh my God. Holy crap." But it didn't happen just once.

The interstate had to be shut down. This high-traffic area in the northwest corner of Arizona doesn't usually see snow, especially not like this.

"The main roads are really clear, but residential neighborhoods are pretty frozen," says Louis Houser, a driver. And it's not just the roads.
