The city is pretty much shut down....there were hardly any cars on the road today during "rush hour." You ready? We have currently 2 inches. I LOVE this city!!!

LOL! I'm north of you (Bellingham), but we had about 16" of snow this morning and have been warned to expect another 6-12 inches tonight! Stay safe and warm!

hahhhaa! I'm not sure what I enjoyed more, the song or the driving. Hilarious! I live a bit south of you in Vancouver, WA and it's snowing pretty good here right now. The whole city is on "HIGH ALERT" for the 4 inches in the forecast. funny stuff. (I grew up in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio, we got snow)

Ahhahaha welcome to my life in Texas. This is what happens the two times a year that we get snow.
Up north, we were all like "eh there's a foot already and it's still coming down? No excuses... gotta get to work."

Wow. You guys SHOULD shut down the city when it gets like that!!! : P We had 6 inches last weekend...so everyone drove faster!

That's how it is around here too... we're threatened with a dusting and everyone goes into panic mode. You can forget about finding milk, bread, or TP at the store! Too funny!!

Those drivers are going to take a long time to reach their destination.

That video is priceless!!

We had over 15 cms the other night in a 2 hour span...just another day in Ontario! lol

I know that 2" of snow doesn't faze me in the least, but watching that video, I'm not exactly sure why: do I just drive fairly normally because I'm used to it, or do I employ some special technique I instinctively know and don't think about? I mean, in the video even those people in 4-WD SUVs were having trouble. I go bombing around in my Toyota minivan in 10"! You've got me quite curious.

All I know is that here in MO, 2" is not cause for school to be out or my office to even be delayed opening. HOWEVER, we do have plenty of plows and salt. I guess that's the real reason why it's such a death blow to other cities, they don't have the equipment.

Ha and I thought it was bad here. That's pretty sad lol. Was there a lot of ice under the snow or were those drivers just that bad?? I don't like to drive on ice at all, so I'd understand if it were that. Great video!
