fsufan: lindalouwho: skinink: When Las Vegas got rain, people would continue driving as if there was no rain. But then, they don't get much of it. It wouldn't shock me that Florida would have problems with an inch of snow.

Not an inch, one tenth of an inch.
But they had freezing rain beforehand, so I'd imagine roads were slick.

I woke up to ice on the car this morning.  Had to scrape it off with a scraper I keep in the trunk that I bought after visiting some friends up north one Christmas.


Handy tip. If you have ice on your windshield, get a pitcher of very hot water. Boiling from the stove. And pour that all over your windshield. Very soon you won't have any ice obscuring your vision.
Ever again.

frisbee3: This is a difficult thread. Florida passed New York in population due to baby boomers retiring, etc., so I'm wondering why we have so many Yankees who can't drive in a bit of snow here? Is it because of the flip-flops?

germ78: steklo: I don't care what anyone says. Driving on ice is treacherous.

4 wheel drive does not always mean, 4 wheel stop.

At least in the snow you have control. You have no control on ice unless you have metal studs or chained tires.


Back in the 80s there was one year when we had many feet of snow, total. The next summer, a whole bunch of guys went out and bought 4x4 trucks with snow plow attachments, figuring they were going to pay for the truck by plowing snow. The following winter, there was very little snow but a lot of freezing rain (also known as ice). The guys in the 4x4s would go flying down the road like "WAHOOO! I'M INVINCIBLE!" only to spin out and end up in a ditch. It was a very good winter for tow truck operators.

I'm not buying it. These "tenths of a inch" are like some kind of mythical beast like unicorns or a Detroit Tigers superbowl ring.

Fractions of an inch are measured as fractions. If they said they had received 3/32" I'd believe it.


Your profile says you break shiat for a living. Many have tried, but the metric system is unbreakable.

Reminds me of when my late wife and I were living in Austin, TX. Every 3-4 years, we'd get somewhere between 1'8" and 1/4" of snow - HUUUUGGGEEE drifts, y'know, and no one could remember that far back in history. The city would literally shut down, schools, everything, and half the people would be doing 5mph, and the other half still trying to do 80. And all they had to put on the roads was ashes.

I'd laugh myself silly. My late wife, having lived a few years in north Texas, could drive in it, but didn't care to, so she declared me to be the Designated Yankee.

"Hurr durr, you stupid southerners don't know how to drive in snow! 30 degrees isn't cold! Hurr durr"

You're right cupcake, it doesn't happen regularly down here, we're not used to it.
However, this summer, when the heat wave hits you and it's 110 degrees and old people are stroking out and dying, we won't be mocking you for it, we'll just simply say, "Bless your hearts" and send thoughts and prayers your way.

Also, this is not a condition Florida is used to.  They have not had any chance to develop any experience driving on that type of road conditions.
