Your thoughts on the snow?

Postby The Tim » Sun Jan 04, 2009 8:33 pm

I personally enjoy the snow, except for the fact that my driveway's about 500 feet long, and when we had the foot of snow around Christmas it was a bit of a challenge getting my little Saturn sedan through that.

Once I got out to the street it was pretty easy going. But I also live in a pretty flat part of Kenmore, close to a major arterial (522), so I don't have to deal with hills and local municipalities' complete inadequacy in clearing them.

I love it too. My days during the snow consisted of me coming home from work, shoveling some food in my mouth and then playing outside with my kids until their bedtime.

I went to high school in Kodiak, AK and have loved snow all my life.

In Seattle, its amusing when we get a couple inches and it shuts down the city for a day or two (holiday from work, taking it easy).

This year was just insane, however. And my car can't handle 6" of snow, it gets high centered and my traction is lousy. I drove to family christmas eve dinner and it was pretty stressful, even though I actually know how to drive on snow (usually I can drive up to stevens or snoqualmie pass in my car, even under a traction tires advisory because they plow those roads and i'm not an complete idiot).

I need to buy a small pickup and get some good rain/traction tires for it.

Questions:

- Why do people here not give you more space behind you when following you downhill in snow? (especially the minivan with no chains tailgating me down pike)
- Why do people spin their tires all the way up hills?
- Why do people go slow up hills?
- Why do pedestrians still aggressively cross the street like you're going to be able to stop for them?

Load up the back of a small pickup with snow and you are good to go in the snow.
