    With the snow especially in W WA you see some pretty weird stuff..... I saw a chained up 4x4 on Tuesday driving on bare pavement........a friend of mine saw a front wheel mini van with the back tires chained up.......with this weekends snow we should be able to add a few more laughs......

    I saw a guy over here picking up dog poop in his back yard before the snow covered it up.

    A lady biologist I used to work with drove out of the snow line and back to the office in a truck with chains on. Over 50 miles on dry pavement at the speed limit. The truck bed was thrashed but the chains made it all the way.

    I’ve heard stories of how bad it is over there but good lord.
    I remember seeing on the news one year when people just stopped and parked on I-5 do to snow/ice.

    Yep....some ran out of gas in the backup, others were too scared to keep driving...enough did it that traffic stopped no where to go

    Saw a car driving down the opposite side of the road going 30mph(ish), wipers going full speed, w/ the windshield, and all other windows, completely iced over. I’m not kidding when I say that person literally could not see anything. Armageddon I tell ya. :doh

    Cheers,

    Had a guy here wipe out 3 cars in the parking lot. It looked like he wanted to run but his car wouldn't climb the hill.:confused:

    There’s a guy at my work with a big 4x4, he gets fully chained up too. He does it to help pull out cars that get stuck. So it may look stupid to you, but it could be someone just trying to do something nice.
