Yes it was cold, yes the temp was right on the freezing line but to go from 70mph to 15mph on the highway was total overkill. We could have all set it on 40ish and been just fine.
It was bumper-to-bumper from Dayton to Franklin, Cincinnati-Dayton road to I275. I275 to Montgomery road. We had to get off at Montgomery road for a while to attend to a few things. When we got back on the highway 40 minutes later the traffic had cleared up. Had we stuck to it, however, it was red taillights as far as we could see so we would have continued to be stuck in traffic had we pushed forward.
It was far more dangerous in my driveway than it ever was on the interstate. Yet, for some bizarre reason, people flipped out over the rain.
