Thinking of snow and ice, have y'all seen this?
This is in Portland, OR, a few days ago. My sister lives there and
she took about 3:15 to get from her SO's house to her own house that
morning - just 20.5 miles.
Of course, all the sunshiney-state pundits are lampooning drivers in
this video, and I admit some of these drivers were foolish, but the
extent of the ice at that moment was impressive. Might well as be on
a kid's snow disc as in a car!
I'd just like to see how the sunglasses set handles driving there, and
whether they'll shut up in a hurry!!!
(I grew up in Minnesota and rural northwestern Colorado - I've been on
my share of hockey rinks...... I mean, icy streets. I understand the
challenge of getting around in slippery conditions all too well.)
