So I get the whole thing. We don't get snow that often and we want to have fun and take the day off great. And that's the excuse for not learning to drive in the snow and driving anyway? Holding back traffic and hurling your cars of the road like it's a competition. How about getting off your ass to do something more than get drunk and build a snowman. Shovel your sidewalks and stairs AS IT'S SNOWING! Yes you need to do it 2-3 times a day maybe. Once it's set up and it turns to rain, were even more fucked. And city of Portland only has two plows? Well, why the fuck are they not running 24/7? We could be having fun AND functioning. Too bad people in this town can't grab the concept that a snow event requires a little bit of work and planning.
