Chaos in the city of saints.
Via Toronto Star
I have a “driving in the snow” phobia. This confirms it. I’m not crazy, I’m right.
As a native Floridian, I don’t understand how y’all drive in stuff like this ALL THE TIME EVERY YEAR.
Honestly, I don’t know how we do it either.
As the blog’s favourite Montreal expert, let me tell you that this corner is notorious. It never sets salted on time, and it’s always a hazard! I have literally crawled on the sidewalk here because it’s too slippery to walk.
It seems like there should be one guy with a salt truck who gets sent there, I don’t know, first?
OK can someone please explain to me what the hell is going on? These cars just can’t stop because the tires can’t get traction on the road? How do people live this way? Why would anyone drive on this road?
I was in a car at the bottom of a hill in icy New Jersey once. I could not go forward or back up due to traction issues, and I was helplessly watching a car sliiiiiiide down the hill straight at me, its wheels locked, right on course for a T-bone… when a nitwit in the parking lot at the corner decided he could make it if he went really fast. He pulled onto the street, planning to dart between us, immediately lost traction like every other car in sight, and took the T-bone for me. Huzzah!
You have a powerful guardian angel.
That was my thought at the time.
I would watch a YouTube video of this.
How was even the snowplow chainless?
And, sorry, Seattle has any place beat for ineffectiveness in the snow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhZCyQ3emQg The best part is a little past the three minute mark. A bus hit its own bus stop.
This was two years before: http://www.blogula-rasa.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/seattlebus.jpg
I would have lost my mind if I was on that bus.
