You were saying ...

Stay safe, and stay home - I saw how you guys drive in ice, and it ain't pretty! LOL

Well "excuuuuse me!"... LOL...

I've got experience from driving around in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest and chains and all, along with the ice and snow around there... :-)

I know what you mean, but when I see this kind of weather, I want to chain up and go driving around in it... :-)

I've driven across the Rockies in the dead of winter, and across 1,000 miles of packed snow/ice on the Interstates many times (in traveling between Oregon and Texas/Oklahoma... so I can make it about anywhere...

But, even in Oregon, and in Portland, people can go crazy when the snows hit.

Portland’s biggest problem is ice storms (or what old mossbacks like me call a “silver thaw”), when dense cold air from the Columbia Basin flows down through the Columbia Gorge and runs under the rainfall in Portland - major problem. A similar situation occurs down the Frasier and hits lower BC mainland and where the Straights of Juan de Fuca and the Georgia Straight meet.

I use to watch guys come flying by from 81st to 51st and Yale or from 71st to Sheridan in their 4 Wheel drives.

Wipeout, Wipeout, Wipeout.

Ron Owens use to have a saying this time of year “Ski the Tulsa mountains”.
