So you had a bad day… sliding around in Portland

If you’ve ever been in a car accident, that sound of a car hitting another car can make you sick to your stomach.  This video might make you throw up.  Okay, perhaps that’s an overstatement.  Some may find it funny while some may cringe over and over.

Ice is Dangerous, even in Portland

This was posted in the comments at YouTube.  It really does explain a lot.

It’s hard to see on the video but I live here in Portland and this is a very steep hill up in the West Hills. It isn’t just snow on the street. There is a layer of ice beneath it. The road should have been closed. It was misleading. To add to problem, Portland doesn’t get snow every single winter and therefore many of us aren’t as experienced in the techniques of driving in the stuff.
