Same story, different network. More pix. Diversions suck.
United Airlines flight skids 250 feet off runway in Green Bay amid icy weather - ABC News (http://abcnews.go.com/US/united-airlines-flight-skids-250-feet-off-runway/story?id=53300608)

After a cold (lots of -20C to -40C) but dry winter, we have moved into warm (around 0C) and snow/ice nearly every day. Green Bay with lake effect snow from both Superior and Michigan seems like an odd choice for a diversion but I assume everyone knew what they were doing. Madison to Minneapolis - 3 hour drive but Green Bay is a day trip.
