One inch. The news is "stay at home and off the roads or your gonna die!!!1!1"

Saw 2 wrecks earlier when I went out for errands. Just took my son for a walk around the neighborhood. Heard sirens in every direction.

4 and half hours later for a 5 mile drive. later and I am finally home so I will fix my grammar errors. Sorry guys but I was board since nothing was moving and using my phone to type for me because I have sausage fingers.

Yeah some people need to listen to the news and just stay home. I drove by a 20-car pile-up. While stuck on the hill to the over pass,  the car in front of the car in front of me was trying to turn around then slid into the car in front of me and then they both slid into the pile up. I wish I had used my phone for that instead of typing the original reply.

I got finally got past that to try to get on to I205, I saw there was a  9 car pile up on the on-ramp, so it was closed. Sometimes it's best to listen to the news in this case and just stay home.

One of the problems in Portland area is that we only get snow a couple times a year. Some years no snow unless you drive to the mountains. The state because of some so called "environmental" reasons does not allow the use of salt on the roads, so every packs down and turns into ice.

Because we get so little snow in the Portland area most people do not get snow tires or even carry chains and the weather reports are usually quite dramatic when there is the slightest chance of snow and all we get is a light dusting.  I think many people do not take them very seriously anymore, so when there is actually a real snow fall some people are not prepared.

We have a lot of hills in the Portland area thats probably the biggest problems since most of the pile ups and spin outs were on the hills stopping traffic.  

The car I saw slide into the other was actually a Jeep wrangler which is a four wheel drive so he felt confident enough to try to turn around but on a sheet of ice unless you have snow tires it does no good.

Unless you know how to drive in the snow that we rarely get in the Portland area, it's best to just to stay home rather than spending hours to make what is normally a 15 min. drive.

Problem is we get it once such a small amount of snow each year and Oregon does not use salt on the roads to keep it from turning to ice.

If you think Portland is bad you should see Alabama when the weather man PREDICTS snow. It doesn't even have to actually be snowing for the roads to turn into a shit show.

Wife left at 4 when the office closed.  She made it 5 blocks in 1.5 hours.  She is pissed and having dinner at a restaurant now.  She has AWD and snowflake rated tires.  These morons in sedans with all seasons need to get off the road.

The part that really pissed me off is the school district fucked up royally.  Buses are running super late due to traffic leaving some kids still at school and they said they were closing the buildings at 6.  Meanwhile, parents are stuck in the gridlock.

The problem isn't that you're talking into your phone. It's that you're talking into your phone in run-on sentences longer than some paragraphs in Atlas Shrugged.

I don't know how much it snows in Portland, but if it's very little they might not. Around here there is snow on the ground maybe 5 days a year give or take. I've always planned around it when it's forecasted and have never driven in snow, don't know how, and am not going to try to learn in a RWD Mustang.

I learned to drive in the snow in a RWD GM 1970 muscle car. It had a steep learning curve.

Here in northern Indiana, we can see quite a bit of snow every winter due to "lake effect" accumulation.  So you would think everyone who lives here can drive in it.  NOPE.  Every year the first significant snowfall accumulation results in multiple accidents and pile-ups.  After that first snowfall, there aren't near as many accidents for the rest of the winter because people finally slow down.

I just don't understand how people can forget how to drive in the snow.  We see it every year.

Are you aware that there are people in this world that have a severe medical condition which causes them to be that way? My mother for instance is one of those people. She is a truck driver that has bad knees and a bad back from driving the truck but you probably do not care about that case either. Oh well I am not one of those people I am 6'4" 245lbs and I exercise every day. I would love to see you say something like to my mother in front of me. Probably never happen though you are probably just an internet tough guy. I doubt very seriously you would say that to someones face. Just my thought.What do you think. Oh I am sorry you probably do not have a brain. I on the other hand will be happy to buy you a plane ticket to come here and see if you have the nerve to say that to someone I know.

There's been snow on the ground here for more than a week. 

Each time I take a corner if nobody's with a couple hundred yards in front I punch the accelerator and kick the rear end out then steer it back straight.

A few times people see what I'm doing and when they go by I can tell by the looks on their faces they think I'm crazy, I'm just having fun.

A full size pickup coming down the road sideways is a sight.

Excuse me stewardess, I speak drunk Oregonian.

"Portland gets snow maybe once per year.  Eastern Oregonians get more snow, and Portlanders who drive to the mountains will get experience driving in it.  But most people who live in Portland do not have the equipment or experience to prevent themselves from crashing into each other."

Now to be fair there are many hills in the area. It doesn't take much incline to stop the mightiest of the snow pros. Flatlanders use to 10in of snow would be as shit out of luck as everyone here is.

I left work at 2:30 and got home at 4. Normally it takes me 30 mins. I called it a win.

Still snowing. Everything will be shut down tomorrow. SHUT DOWN. Except coffee shops...
