2017 bump?

One thing I miss about being a Fed -- teleworking. Got dumped on last night, with the roads hardly treated.

You should carpool with BrandonK...pretty sure he lives and works at the same place you do...make him drive on snow days...  ;)

They've already abandoned cars on the GW Parkway.

But it's Colorado. Which we are told instantly imbews you with the ability to disregard the normal laws and physics and drive around as if it were merely a light rain.

It's the DMV where Newton was wrong...Escalades here can stop on a dime on icy roads because they have AWD.  Ask anyone.

I'll share a funny photo when I'm by the computer that I saw this morning. Guy spun out in his Subaru on the highway. Just got out and drank a soda instead of moving :lol:

A guy I knew in Canada ran off the road and buried his front end in a snowbank on the way home from the grog shop.  Good Russian that he was, he popped the boot and managed to work his way through a good part of a case of beer before the RCMP showed up.  He didn't drive after that.

Those people somehow seem to make it home though.  I'm not looking forward to the next intake of sun belt politicos and their infallable AWD panzers.

If you spin out and put the side of your 94 Cherokee into a snow bank, you shrug and drive home.

Folks I know in Western PA fix up a little spot with 2 X 4s over the axle and toss in sand bags.

The only thing that would be different here would be that they got out of the car. They'd stay in their car here. Just block traffic.
