Snow
#1112360 - 11/29/05 02:16 PM

We got snow here in in Bellingham. First time living in a place that gets snow. I have lived in NorCal and SoCal my whole life and have been looking towards seeing it snow.

[censored]. My 30 minute commute took 2 hours due to snow on Tiger Summit on Hwy 18.

Can we send the snow south to Portland?

Woulda been faster in an SVT!!!

No snow up here, just heavy rain. It wants to snow, but can't quite get there. Good thing I have the Blizzaks on now, though!

It's amazing! Done it several times. I'm convinced that one of the times I went over Mt Hood I wouldn't have made it without it.

yes, one of those elongated buses...the photo in the paper today, made it look like two separate buses...now the snow is all gone, meanwhile a bunch of idiots have accident claims to deal with...

haha yeah i should've known.. those syncronated buses are horrible in the snow.. they usually take them off their runs when there is snow.
