    Southern drivers needed..........................

    ......to come up to PA and teach these idiots how to drive in the snow! ...holy crap, you'd swear they've never seen the stuff before......................
    OIL CITY, Pa. (EYT) — Emergency crews and police are on the scene of multiple motor vehicle accidents due to road conditions throughout the City of Oil City.
    According to police, the streets in Oil City are “nearly impassable” as of 7:45 a.m. on Friday.
    Multiple motor vehicle accidents have been reported throughout City of Oil City, and police and emergency personnel are working to clear the scenes.
    The Oil City Police Department are asking the public to avoid travel in the area, if possible.
    No additional details are available at this time.
    Police are expected to release information on the accidents within the next 48 hours.

    ..."nearly impassible"?! I've got a 2wd pickup, decent winter treads but no real weight in the back and I didn't have any trouble, I mean.......there's only about 1" of snow, what're they gonna' do if winter ever hits here?

    No thanks, I'm retired now when it snows I get another cup of coffee and thank God I can stay home. Do not miss having to be on the road with idiots that can't drive on warm dry roads without running over others.

    I always loved the idiots that think "Hey, I have 4WD, I can go anywhere". And then realize that "Hey, I can't stop on a dime". Coming to Texas from living most of my life up north in the winter weather I was quick to learn it was simply better to stay home then to get in the mix of those less qualified to face challenges of Mother Nature.

    I now agree with TheOldRedneck, stay in and enjoy that extra cup of coffee. I usually follow up with a nap.

    Somehow that doesn't make sense.
    I would have thought that Northern drivers would have to teach Southern drivers how to drive in snow.
    Why would Southern drivers have experience driving in snow?

    They likely wouldn't but would still have to be better at it than most of these locals. There was a medium truck, a li'l straight job, layin' on its side at the end of a gas station parking lot just down the road......still tryin' to figure how he pulled that off. Of course, while I was stationed at NAS Norfolk, I saw a car on its roof in the McDonald's drive-thru on base, one sunny, summer afternoon......so I suppose anything can be done if ya' work at it hard enough.

    Most of the fools on the road down here can't drive in the rain. You really want them coming up there to drive in the snow?

Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.

    Usually the first slippery snow of the season turns the roads into Demolition Derby events. People go way to fast for conditions and run into those who are Freaked Out and doing 20mph... Fun to watch... I used to live within sight distance of a major intersection on US31 in West Michigan... We could sit in our living room and watch the chaos take place!!

    When people lose their way and begin to vote for their own yokes and chains and suddenly we’re all wearing them, when Government turns tyrannical and the light of liberty is being extinguished.... our 2nd amendment is our ONLY hope.

    I can think of twice when I drove in the snow and once in an ice storm in my 4x4 toyota. Saved the best for last, at 10,000 feet in the White mountains of Arizona on a motorcycle. Ever heard of the Coronado trail? THAT one was enough for two lifetimes, but it sure was pretty.

    It's cold today, no snow, yet I've gotten out of the house once to retrieve a part from the truck. Slept most of the afternoon. life is good.

    I was one of those 4WD drivers when we lived in New England- mostly CJ-5's but and CJ-7- but at least I realized that all cars had 4 wheel brakes, and that I could "go" better than most, but only "stop" just like them.

    Want to see some serious road carnage- Go to El Paso and wait 'til it rains... (You'll be there a while...)

    Our little borough here has it's own Public Works employees who also run the snow plows. Around 7:45 this morning I spied one of their trucks coming down the totally clear road, snow plow in the ready position with lights flashing. I imagined the cartoon bubble over his head which read "can I drop the salt now chief, can I please can I"?
