Subfreezing temperatures produced the Central Valley's first major traffic pileup of the winter season Thursday as 18 automobiles and seven big-rig trailers collided in the thick fog shrouding an icy interstate causeway slightly west of the state capital. There were no fatalities but the accident sent eight people to the hospital and closed the Yolo Causeway on Interstate 80 for nearly six hours. I-80 is the major artery between San Francisco and Sacramento.

Butterfly populations in the Sacramento Valley and nearby foothills hit a 28-year low in 1999, according to UC Davis entomologist Arthur Shapiro. But the problem is not human intervention, he added. The villain was a freeze during Christmas week of 1998, which reduced the survival of overwintering eggs, caterpillars, pupae and adults, and a cool spring and summer, he said Tuesday. Of the region's 55 resident species, he said, 14 were largely or completely missing during his biweekly surveys.

The December freeze that destroyed most of California's citrus crop has had immediate consequences for the economy of the Central Valley, where farm workers in some hard-hit towns are lining up by the hundreds for food and other necessities during what should be the peak of their season. In a region already defined by poverty and high unemployment, the arctic blast threw about 13,000 pickers and packers out of work.
