Sliding in Seattle

My buddy has a theory about Seattle drivers. About half of the drivers on the road grew up in Seattle, and thus have no idea how to drive in the sun. The other half moved here from California, and thus have no idea how to drive in the rain. There's a very small minority that grew up in places with more adverse weather, and know how to drive in anything, but they're the exception, not the rule.

Would you like to know when people are really screwed?


We got a decent amount of snow today in Seattle. Now, if this was Idaho, Montana, either of the Dakotas, ect., ect., ect. this wouldn't be newsworthy. Hell, in Chicago they wouldn't even pull out the snowplows for what we got. But in Seattle? Muahaaahaaahaaaaaaaaa!

Thankfully, I grew up in Northern Idaho and learned how to drive in the middle of winter. So I'll get into my four-wheel drive truck and do my best to avoid the other non-driving people out there who are sliding their cars around like Olympic skaters on an ice rink.
