slow motion crashes

2007-01-19 14:27:10.339006+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

I don't know what it is about snow in Portland Oregon, but... Mark, of Brainwagon, and I unknowingly dodged the same snowstorm in Portland about a year ago. I was on the way to the airport and my family decided that continuing on would be beyond foolish, so they left me to catch a train (which took forever), but I remember the roads being bizarrely slippery.

Mark has a link and some commentary (with video embedded) to a YouTube video of cars sliding and spinning and crashing at slow speeds in a Portland snow storm. Sometimes you've gotta park and walk, and the smart ones make that decision early.

It's not just in Portland:

That's why I bus and walk everywhere. This morning, I actually wore my headlamp so I wouldn't bust my ass slipping on the ice here.
