Seattle, like most of the Northern West coast , is on VERY hilly terrain. Not a problem usually in dry , warm weather. But Ice makes them extremely treacherous. YOU might never have seen ice that prevented you from walking , but I have. Take those same nasty scandavian roads, then put them on 40 degree incline!
You forgot to add millions of trees that don't do well in a cold snap. The most dangerous part of all this is hundreds/thousands of trees snapping off and falling randomly and destroying/killing anything they land on. The Pacific Northwest is carpeted with huge trees. Any non-winterized trees died long ago in Scandinavian regions or other regions that get lots of snow.
I don’t think 5thGuardsTankArmy was trolling, just showing off a bit. But I think you should cut him some slack, those who live in cold climates like his rarely have anything to brag about weather wise lol, so though a little impolitic given the concerns of sventhebold for his daughter, his post can be forgiven.
You might want to check some of this "person's" posts. You will find multiple personalities,inflamatory remarks and even one post glorying in a Forumites death. Jim I don't think I've ever seen this "worthy" NOT troll. Please humor me and do your research. I don't think you will then feel that I've "misjudged him". But if you actually do , I'll consider an apology.
And you are absolutely right, I'd forgotten the trees. But not the drivers! They are incompetant enough in rain....ice? OMG!!!!!!
