This happens to me there at least once per week. They totally have them timed wrong.

2 feet of snow! I'm as ready as I can be.

Would an "all reds" for 4 seconds in these intersections help?

Great suggestions! Longer amber traffic lights; and, "all red" for several seconds... probably negligible expense (just to reprogram control-box timers). And, if they don't already exist, place (for traffic in both directions) "flashing amber light" warning of traffic signal ahead. You would think with all the insurance claims filed as a result of this situation, that the insurance companies would approach Caltrans with such a proposal (after all, money talks...).
