Response to Aristus (Reply #4)

6. I'm from New England & I know better than going out in this.

I moved here in the 80s and learned fast not to screw around when a winter storm hits.

Hills with a 15-20% grade are not uncommon here and the geography lends itself to long bridges, many of them steep. There's little call for plows & sanders, so only the main roads are treated-- it's been snowing for 4 days now, and not a single plow has come by. Most people don't have snow shovels so we end up trying to manage with garden tools.

There's just no infrastructure for this.
