Man that sucks... But yeah, probably not news if not for the fireworks.

I'm on the other side of the Lake (Michigan), and on those occasions with NE winds we can get it too. All it takes is somebody clueless to panic brake because they can't see and combine that with people following too closely for conditions. It's not like we're in the mountains here, and most roads are pretty straight thus the best thing to do is coast down if you suddenly can't see. That way the person behind has more than enough time to do the same. And if you think you're significantly slower than anyone coming from behind, put on your hazards and let those (dumb enough and) willing to charge ahead have the room to pass.

Usually pileups like this involves the combination and chance meeting of both those who are too scared and too bold to be driving in the snow. And then of course you get those unfortunate enough to be caught inbetween the two.
