You may not live in the west. Still, you probably saw this on your television back in 07 during that horrendous ice/snow storm that lasted for a few weeks out here. If you lived in a place like Michigan, Vermont, or Maine, you were probably laughing your rear-end off.
I lived through that storm. Yes, we really DO drive that badly out here in inclement weather like that… Even professional drivers were having their asses handed to them by mother nature.
My real worry is that I now live on a hill that steep or steeper… and winter is fast approaching … *starts building a bunker*
