Fun to drive in, though :p

We just got our annual "snow storm" up here in the PNW. After a massive 1.5" (yes...that's " not ') of new stuff fell, the State Patrol reported over 400 weather related accidents resulting in about 4-5 deaths.

I'm tellin ya...Seattle drivers blow chunks. This must be the only place where an inch of snow can cause a region of 3+ million people to shut everything down. My favorite part is when the local cable news channel (NWCN) started covering "Winter Storm 2002" round the clock for about 48 hours.


Friggin typos...

Nope, that's next week.

Anyways, 18 inches of snow doesn't even phase us here. Maybe in the Southern states, this would be a national emergency, but not here ;)

I know what you mean, it's like that around here too.

BTW, mailboxes look funny with that much snow sitting on top of them. :p

wish it would snow that much here... I'm in the same area as cj. I was behind someone goig up a hill... they had a grand cherokee and they kept slowing down, speeding up, then slowing down again. Between about 5 and 10 mph. It was irritating me because I couldn't keep a steady speed because of that dumbass. It was compact snow and ice and I almost got stuck because of losing all my momentum. With a line of 6 or so cars behind this guy, he never even pulled over. (the forgotten law about holding up 5 or more vehicles). Anyways, when it comes to snow, people in the seattle area are dumbsh!ts. Wish is would snow that much so everyone else would stay home!

Virgina drivers aren't that great here either...we get some snow and the morons think its 90 and sunny and they can still stop an a dime. Last one we got I'm keeping the speed down to 55 on the highway, can't see the lines and people are blowing past me like I'm going backwards. I can't wait to move back to the land of the free (Maryland).

Hell, one inch of snow in the southern states is a national emergency!

Here in Detroit we have about 4-10 inches of snow with .25-.75 inches of ice. I grew up on the west side of the state in lake effect snow country so this shit doens't even phase me. And to think just a few days ago it was spring weather!

Kinda looks like what Ottawa does today. Just a constant downpour of snow that started about noon. Unfortunately, we are guaranteed weather like this each and every year.

We were doing okay til today and tomorrow. And when the snow finally stops, then a cold front comes in and drops the merc really cold. So the snow we get in December stays until late March, early April. Very few, if any, thaws here to rid our streets of snow.

I wanna move south.
