PA drivers are okay. At least we can handle a little snow. Bah. Drive slower, take curves carefully, turn on your lights so other drivers can see you, be defensive, and turn into any slides. Ain't that hard.
Here in Tennessee traffic was actually backed up so bad near a local grocery store that people were getting out of their cars and leaving them in the middle of the four lane highway to try to get into the store before they ran out of everything. No joke.
hehehe, you weren't here in 1992 when people were stuck inside 3 days because it snowed. =) Peoepl were stuck in Waffle House and Walmart for those 3 days! Me, I'd have walked home, lol.
You can drive on snow fine, it when it freezes over and the ice is covered that it becomes an issue. The State used to export all it's salt, now they've learned we need to keep some for stuff like this every 10 years. I was very glad they salted the overpass last week. It was the only place I worried about when commuiting.
I would expect people from MN to be able to handle snow though; I know when I was in South Dakota and Iowa, snow was second nature - you could do 80 on an icepatch and no one thought anything about it.
Seriously, that's the part of the country where three feet doesn't cancel school, it just means you need to start digging your way there earlier.
If you love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We don't seek your counsel, we don't seek your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countryman. - Samuel Adams
People who slow down because there is snow and ice on the ground don't piss me off as much as the people who start driving 10 miles under the speed limit just because the temperature dropped to the lower to mid 30s. No precipitation anywhere but these morons seem to think black ice has sprung up overnight forcing them to drive slowly.
