Portland and Vancouver are at standstills again on account of a couple inches of snow. I don't know how the Midwest does it. The roads get so dang slippery here, the news footage looks like something from Benny Hill. Cars boinking into objects, moving or stationary, all the way down hills like pinballs with a screamy soundtrack.
I suppose PNW cities just don't feel it necessary to stock and man the plows and sanding equipment necessary to clear every road in town when we know it will all be rained on the next day.
Just stay home and wait it out. Tomorrow everything will be back to the normal shade of grey.
