Sgygus: If I lived in Seattle, I'd blame Canada.


It's true. In Canada, we're obsessed with the weather. In 1966, due to our strong obsession and desire to control it, we perfected a weather-creation machine. It was a black project in Pearson's administration, and it generally makes the weather "nice, innit?" throughout Canada by outposts staged at particular points that are key for deflecting weather away from the seaboards and southern land border. Of course, like any type of machine, it must follow the laws of physics, and energy cannot be created or destroyed. And the waste has to go somewhere.

We generally aim it at Seattle, because we know that Tim Horton's is the only true coffee shop, not this "Starbucks" franchise, in order to vex them.

You're all wrong. The worst winter driving is in places like China, Japan and the Koreas, because Asians are horrible drivers.

Man up, Nancy, and take your insults like the Starbucks-sipping douchetwat hipster that you are

Hey you know what? F*ck you! Maybe I missed the part where you mentioned living in Seattle and specifically the downtown area? Oh, 'cause you didn't.
I've lived here for many years and the problem is the ice, the hills, and the proximity to and the capriciousness of Puget Sound weather. Travel is dangerous, and I spent time living in Montana where driving in the snow was an everyday occurrence.
We're still surrounded by ice that broke several tree and took out power lines .
Several thousand people are still without power, heat and unable to travel freely.
Stick your ill informed attitude up your ass.


You guys in Seattle are so used to everyone rimming you while you jerk yourselves off to a chorus of compliments about what an enlightened and city you live in that it's made you frail. Now someone lobs even a good natured jibe your way and you fling yourselves on your beds and heave great body-wracking sobs like a fat girl who didn't get asked to the eighth grade dance.

Maybe your not snow wimps, just.... wimps.

Notice anything different between Wisconsin and Western Washington? You can see for farking ever in Wisconsin because it's so damn flat. Also, if you lose control in Wisconsin, your only danger is running into the nothing that makes up the majority of the state. Seattle's quite a bit warmer than Wisconsin so snow melts in the day and turns into a skating rink at night a lot more often. But go ahead and feel superior, living with all that snow.

BTW, we had 2 feet of snow fall at my place in the past 2 days. It has warmed up to the high 20s today and it's raining. Obviously, it is freezing on impact. I might drive the 20 miles to town just to see how fast I can do it. I'll send the video of my controlled slides around the corners coming down the mountain to both the LA reporter chick and the Seattle sports douche just to get the to shut the fark up.

Based on this article and the whining on the internets, let me see if I can boil this down: So "you people" (Seattle apologists) choose to live in a place that regularly gets snow, and periodically gets heavy snow and ice. By latitude and topography alone, you should be aware of what you're getting into. Your local government is apparently admitting they are are unable to properly maintain safe roadways in some areas. You repeatedly complain about trying to park and drive on hills, when common sense would dictate that, when snow and ice take over the town, you have no business driving on these hills, even in a 4WD vehicle with snow tires. Cue the GET A BRAIN guy.

I love the pacific northwest. Some great people, companies, culture, sights, weather, etc. But know what the hell you're getting into. Be realistic about this, it happens this badly at least once every other year. It's not some one-time snowpocalypse. Learn to stay away from dangerous areas.

This is where we're at. People on the internet yelling at you, "Don't drive on icy hills, you idiot."

I lived in Gresham, just off Portland, right in the Columbia River Gorge. Weather changed very quickly because of the crazy high winds that came through. I know the problems the hills caused, but people drove like morons even on the flat stretches. I also understand that people drive like shiat because they simply aren't used to it.

I got home from work about an hour ago. I walked home in the snow. It's great, I love it, but I'm a wintertime guy and can't get enough of winter weather. I really should live in Wisconsin or Minnesota where they get real snow.

But I'm now kind of PO'd and lost my snow high after turning on the TV and seeing reports of 'LIVE BREAKING NEWS!' about the HAVOC an 1.5" of snow is causing. This bimbo weather chick and her 'team of crack meteorologists' just got done with a 20 minute rant about how 'the city is in the grips of a winter storm'. OH MY GOD! EVERYBODY PANIC! It only a farking inch and a half of snow and this babe is acting like the nation guard should be called out. They also keep cutting to live reports by the 'Eye Witness News Team' and from the 'mobile weather lab' from various parts of the city showing the horrible devastation this 'winter weather incident' is causing. So pathetic. Someone should tell these idiots it's winter time and cold, snow, sleet is normal and is not NEWS. There is no havoc, no devastation, but according to local TV news, the world just may be ending.

NEW FLASH: They announced that people should not to leave their homes unless it's absolutely necessary. What pu**ies they think we are.

Gilligan_Buddy: envirovore: Having grown up in Boonville NY (which holds the highest average snow fall yearly in NYS) I'd like to tell Seattle to shut the fark up and deal with it you pussies.
Not like they got two and a half feet of snow at once, which happens often here.

The greatest annual snowfall level is at Mount Rainier, in Washington, at 692 inches (1,757.68 cm); the record there was 1,122 inches (2849.8 cm) in the winter of 1971-1972.

692 inches a year. Mt Rainer is an easy couple hour drive from Seattle. It's not like we don't know what snow is.

Let me guess. You've never been to the PNW?

I have not.
Does driving various poorly plowed mountainous back roads count? Cause I've done that.

/has had to drive in conditions where you couldn't see the end of your hood.
//it's near terrifying actually


I live on the Canadian side of USA's "PNW". What happens is we get periodic massive dumps of snow. It's not steady, it comes in bursts. Two and a half feet at once, yep, sure, that shiat happens reliably.
So it gets plowed. And that's fine, the first day after a snowfall is actually kind of okay.
Then the second day, it melts a little bit. Not a lot, just enough to take the tops off the plowed piles. Overnight, it refreezes. And then it stays frozen. Now, everywhere that was plowed is a skating rink. Everywhere that the snow got plowed -to- is built like a medieval castle wall - an outside, solid wall of ice, with an inner core of slushy wet slow that absolutely destroys traction if you run into it after skating over the ice rink that the road's turned into.
This happens over three or four days, and often twice a week.
Now add hills and mountains for maximum lulz.

Settle down, Seattlites. Oklahomans and Virginians got ridiculed over our reactions to our earthquakes while Californians called us amateurs. We didn't cry about it. Instead, we ridiculed Californians for not knowing how to deal with 100 degree temps and EF-0 tornadoes. If you will feel better, we will let you make fun of us for not knowing how to act when Bigfoot walks through the trees. Will that make you happy?
