Sorry, after spending seven hours on the road trying to get from the airport to home, my sense of humor about "the rides" is a little lacking.

I saw on the news last night about the horrible road issues.
That was a mess. A big mess.
I wonder how many cars were abandoned? And the cost to get them back?

From the entrance to the Vista Ridge Tunnel to about 1/2 mile beyond we counted 20 cars, and then stopped counting. It was a nightmare. It took us three hours to go 5 blocks.

I feel bad for those who had to leave their cars due running out of gas or such. No one was prepared--quite obviously.
Wondered too about those with children or pets stuck in the traffic.
No one on the roads last night were happy campers.

Heard on news last night over 1000 cars were abandoned on the Portland roads. I live out south from Portland (Newberg), so glad to avoid the mess! But the snowfall was beautiful! Now just slush and rain.

I lived in the West Hills, I remember some snowy (though beautiful) days that were terrifying.
Stepping on the gas,going up hill when the car starts slipping backward.
I mentioned to a friend how I was scared of falling off a "cliff" in the hills and his comfort was ''dont worry, you will crash into the trees going down and it will eventually break your fall"
