So, How Is It Where You Are?

One the one hand, it doesn't snow here much, so there are few plows and such. On the other hand, people here don't know what the hell they are doing in bad weather. To be fair the tendency is for snow to come AFTER a good ice storm/freezing rain, so you get a great sheet of black ice under the snow when it does snow. It's tough to walk. Hills + ice + Seattle drivers. Get a good viewpoint, and you're all set.

Enjoy:

If Seattle is lacking in pickup-driving tailgaters, I'm sure Denver can export...

That's some seriously scary shit, Stucco. Fun to watch, too. Dude trying to stop the car by hanging on the passenger door is priceless. :-)

We live on one of those "dangerous curves"...

So far, no one lost it into our fence this year.

We got a rain that cleared the road in a hurry, which was good.

Oh, MAN! I can just FEEL that in the pit of my stomach. We get that a lot in New England, and one of my biggest bitches is people who think that because they drive an all-wheel drive that the laws of physics no longer apply to them. GAH!

the fact that someone who thinks they can jump out and keep 2000+ pounds of steel from sliding simply by digging their heels into the snow really cracks me up!!

You know, I don't think I want snow anymore. The yokels around here can't drive when it get a little foggy wet, I can't imagine it black-iced over.

Merry Xmas, Slysta (my word verification)!

I know, it is hilarious how many people are crashing. Idiots are even trying to brave back roads like mine that have snow up to the hood of normal sedans in places. I love living near hills since they are perfect accident prone hot zones in weather like this.

Thanks for using my video too, it was a bit of a pleasant surprise. xD
