"I Paid $60 for These Stupid Chains And They Don't Even Work!"
We got a bit of snow locally last night (man it feels good to be able to link someplace again -- thanks, Barney!). I came to the office and there was about five inches on the ground with a sheet of ice underneath, and the tourists around here were panicking, many of them were worried they wouldn't be able to get out of their driveways on the last day of this holiday weekend (it's not that awful -- just take it slow).
But the most entertaining thing I've seen in a while has to be a little sedan I followed out of Sunriver. When you're exiting Sunriver's main entrance, there's a ever-so-slight incline and people frequently slip a bit there as the stop sign is at the top of the slope. I came up behind a car with chains on that was really struggling to get out of there, front wheels spinning away.
There was just one slight problem: His chains were on the back wheels, and he was in a front-wheel drive car.
The license plate was from California, and I'm sure the guy has never driven in this kind of weather before, but I'm sure he's swearing up a storm.
