I'm in Austin, TX and even we're expecting a "wintry mix" over night and into tomorrow. That means the R/T is staying safe and warm in the garage while the rest of Austin creates their massive pile ups out on the roads. At least 1/3 of the people I've met since I moved down here, including my girlfriend, have never seen show fall. This weekend should be rather interesting. The news stations are already freaking out about it. I think it will be a perfect weekend to just sit and home and relax...

Is snow fall over 3" considered a crisis?

I hear that in Atlanta they shut down the city from just the threat of winter weather (snow, freezing rain, etc).

Near Kalamazoo, MI there was a 60 car pile up on I-94 due to lake effect snow. Lafe effect snow is nasty shit. I've driven in it for many years. Of course since I've moved to Detroit in Oct/2000 I haven't had to worry about it, except for when I go visit the parents.

HERE IS THE STORY

A COUPLE MORE PICS

Bunch of whiners, be glad you don't live in Nebraska. Snow like that happens weekly during the winter. And there are accidents but relatively few because all the people who live here are used to driving in it. It's called adjusting to road conditions. Here's and example, I was driving home the other night when it was snowing hard enough you couldn't see more than 1/8 mile ahead of you and screaming up behind me is a 4x4 Dodge Ram....... I said "WOW!" Sure enough less than 200 yards down the road was the Ram off in the ditch, than proceeded into a tree, and the owner standing on the shoulder. I stopped and gave him a ride to a pay phone, but not before having a discussion about safe winter driving, and just because you have a 4x4 doesn't mean your invincible nor can you stop faster. I also informed he was lucky he didn't hit anyone, including myself, in which case I would've all but killed him. And if I wasn't so nice I woulda drove by really slow so proudly displaying my finger and blowing my horn.

Hey BEAR.....ever drive in lake effect snow? One minute you'll be driving down the hiway and you can see miles ahead of you. Out of nowhere (and I mean it can change in a matter of a second) a snow squall will hit and you can't see the front of you car. By the time you adjust to the driving conditions it can be too late.

I sure haven't, being as how I live no where near a lake of any size, but I have seen it sleeting, raining, snowing all at once.......makes for a interesting drive because one minute your on a sheet of ice and the next you're not. And I have had a 18 foot drift in front of my driveway...... took them a week to get a payloader and dumptruck to remove it.
