Wow, that was funny!

Truth be told, I think any state can keep traffic moving in snow if it is adequately funded and equipped to keep the roads maintained and everyone has studded tires or chains on their vehicles. Other than that, there are bad drivers in every state. You should see Alaskans after the first snow. They get into lots of accidents simply due to overconfidence and lack of preparedness. Everyone’s a vetran six months into winter, though.

I got stuck for five hours in Tulsa two winters ago because of ten inches of snowfall. No one had the appropriate equipment to deal with that. If half the trucks had snow plows attached to the front like up here, you’d wait five minutes for the plows to make their runs and get on with it, studded tires and all.

Now, -70 is a different thing all together.

Hey, have any of you put studs in your running shoes?
