Unforgettable day of icy roads, fender benders and hard freeze fun

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

Let's face it, some sights are just hard to forget, like drivers going the wrong way, kiddy pools turning into sleds, overpasses becoming skating rinks and breaking the ice trampoline style.

With most people staying home, the morning drive to work was surprisingly easier than usual for some drivers.

But the drive was an ice covered mess for many others.

Some even retreated, like these drivers high tailing it off the bridge at 610 and 59.

Many highway bridges and ramps were completely blocked off, like the I-10 west entrance ramp from the Eastex Freeway.

The Shepherd bridge at I-10 was closed for hours, but some determined drivers obviously thought the orange cones were there to stop other drivers not them.

And it was a fine fun-filled day to play with the ice.

Social media sites like Facebook gave us a chance to see how inventive daring and downright funny Fox 26 viewers can be.
