    I used to drive between Toronto and Chicago quite regularly and the 94 in the winter is pretty fucking bad. I hit the worst black ice ever there one winter. cars and trucks all over the place and in the ditch. one word of advice is to NEVER stay at the Motel 6 in Benton Harbor, MI. it's essentially a crack/whore house. worst motel I've ever seen. sleep in your car instead if you have to.

    Did they at least leave the lights on?

    Agree about 94 in the winter, have had some really nasty drives on there going across towards the lake

    Holy shit. that sounds like straight out of a movie. I've had a couple of bad motel experiences, one scary, even in New Orleans. But this sounds even worse.
