4:05 am
the main issue this is just an example here. i brought out the hammer to just show you how thick the ice is in some places. in other place, you have to give it a few whacks. china town, still some icy layers here, and you can actually see the pavement, which is something we did not see when we were passing the residential areas headed to this point in town earlier this morning. you do want to be careful. a lot of slipping and sliding, and i almost ended up like mike this morning, trying to get down my driveway was a task in itself. trying to open the carer door was difficult, too. when you head out this morning, expect everything to be frozen over. if you can stay join doors, do so. makia turner, wusa 9. knows the cliche it's
4:06 am
instead of cats and dogs, it was cows walking along interstate 61. >> the trailer carrying the cattle ran off the road and overturned. six kims were killed and six escaped the trailer. >> up on the over side, we found one in the woods, and they put it to sleep, and then we drug it out of the woods, and we waited on a trailer. >> once captured, they were tranquilized until a new truck picked them up, and state police called in a vet to help. the driver has been charged with wreckless driving. in some cases, area emergency responders found themselveses in need of a rescue. a volunteer ems crew from middle river called for help after getting stuck on an ice- covered river. it's
4:07 am
you're behind the wheel, people clearing their sidewalks found hazardous conditions. >> people are going to hurt themselves out here. that's all it is. this man shoveled the snow off the sidewalk in front of his home, and then he came back out after dark to find it was covered in sheets of ice. >> be careful out there. driving and walking is dangerous. we are all over the place including in montgomery county. >> nikki burdines live. how is it going out there? unfrozen a bit? >> reporter: the camera may have unfroze, but we are frozen out here, as well as the streets. you may notice mike hydeck is not in the studio. he's stuck in his neighborhood. we came out to rescue him. good morning, mike hydeck. how are you doing? >> good, good, good. you have 4 wheel drive, but it's not 4 wheel stop, and when your neighbho

sheet of ice, there's no way we could make it out of our neighborhood. it's impossible this morning. >> reporter: you can't get to work, so you decided for experiments. >> we tried to do facebook mentions, and i fell on my rear end at least two or three times this morning b. careful, you can fall and get really hurt. my knee still hurts this morning. show us your experiment. please don't fall, mike. >> okay, so here it is. that's my road. that's my road. still going! still going! still going! >> reporter: oh, that's really painful to watch. >> that's now at the bottom of my street, and that's probably 150 yards from where we are right now. >> reporter: that's a good example to show if you would have pulled your
4:09 am
your driveway and gone down the street that could have been your car. >> right. imagine something that is 2,000 or 3,000 pounds and doesn't stop. i could have ended up in my neighbor's living room down there i know you guys had your drives to work from dc and virginia, you said not as bad, but defending on where you are, it's dangerous. >> reporter: many side roads looking yike your neighborhood. unfortunately this is not the exception. it's more of the rule this morning. will see a lot of this this morning. mike, any advice to people? >> stay home if you can. topper, allyson all said there's going to be a significant change this afternoon. there's no way to get a bus or vehicle down the side streets like this. again, wait if you can. i came out knowing it was here, and i still fell. that's ho

all right, and welcome back to wake up washington. it's very icy out there. like we have been saying, the main roads seem to be okay, but some of you may not be able to make it to the main roads because it's just a sheet of ice. we are seeing the warm air slow to rise. look at the temperatures, below freezing, and we will stay that way for another few hours. i don't think we will get above freezing across the board until day break. we have seen the temperatures increase rapidly. they increase 4 degrees, and then an hour and 90 minutes, we will see the temperatures jump, but it's going to be awhile. until then, freezing rain out there, and it will continue, especially for the areas to the west. you will have a sheet of ice on top of your car if it's parked outside. we will go through the future cast in a bit, and we will time out the heavy rain that will cause flooding concerns on

4:20 am
>> a woman from daytona was pulled over at a rest stop relaxing in her suv. it's big, but it's smart. officers are worried about drivers starting to hydroplane once it starts to melt. there's a little relief on the way? >> there is. we have to go through a couple of rough hours before we get there. this afternoon it will be fine, and it's really nice, and we need to take a deep breath. even a hint of spring. the next 3 hours are going to be icy, and then the following 3 hours are going to be soaking rain with that hydroplaning
4:21 am
in, a delay. >> i think that's a smart delay. the winter weather advisory has been extended for more areas seeing the freezing rain at this hour. temperatures are still just below freezing. we will not get above freezing until at least the sun comes up. after that happens and we do see the heavy rain headed our way. we will have a flood watch in place, and we are going to see a lot of rain that will bring at a very short amount of time, and that's going to cause flooding concerns, especially on the sides of the roads, rivers and streams, along with the snow melt. temperatures are below freezing. that's ice. it will be very slippery again, and we have been saying the main roads are okay, but your parking lot and sidewalks are nothing but ice, a nice glaze. i just kind of slid across my patio and over to my sidewalk to get to my car this morning. i never even got my car unfrozen. first alert doppler, warm air to the soh

4:23 am
the inner loop of the beltway, an issue for folks traveling on the vw parkway and 450. folks are being cautious of the icy conditions this morning, and that's exactly what you need to do this morning. smart train riders, no issues there, and if you're traveling southbound on the vw parkway, starting at fort mead, working your way down to east capital street northeast, you're looking at a 19 minute commute. all things considered, it could be longer. traveling i-66 to 20th street northwest a30 minute commute, southbound on i-270. remember, we are watching for the fog in this area. it's pretty significant. all the way down to the capital beltway. it's going to be a live look to show you how things are shaping up out at route 5, and you can see traffic flowing slowly. andrea? k
