Just a Little Snow

A fear has struct western Washington. A fear…of snow! But this isn’t just any snow storm they fear, but one that could yield 1-3" of snow. That’s right – 1 to 3 inches.

I come from the Midwest where 1-3" of snow makes for a beatiful winter. I’ve driven hours through snow storms when you couldn’t see 5′ in front of your car.

What I fear here, however, is the Washintonians in the snow. They drive bad enough in the rain, either driving too slow or too fast. Those driving slow you can tell aren’t prepared for inclement weather. The fast drivers are just dangerous in normal conditions. From what I hear it gets much worse when there’s a little snow on the ground.

There is black ice to worry about and even 1-3" of snow can be dangerous, but here traffic slows down to just a few miles per hour and a new sea – a sea of brake lights – forms on land.

So what I fear as a Washintonian is Washintonians in the winter. God help us all.

    Hehe… 1-3" huh, tonight I will snap a picture of all the snow that is at the end of my driveway, pushed off to the side so I can get out. Now that it is done snowing here, we’ve had anywhere from 10-15", approximately 12" in Ankeny. Just wait till you see the pictures I take tonight. 🙂
