  • Snow n ice

    Dang it is a bit nippy out around PDX today..... Hope everyone in the area is keeping warm and cozy...... I'll try to make sure PGE keeps the lights on for you CEG'rs in the area.....

    I've been at work on and off today .... more on than off and in case you were wondering the crazies are on the roads! I saw a hotshot in a honda take the corner too fast try'n to make a light (can you believe it?) and slide across the road n hit a curb. About riped off his front bumper.... LOL that ricer deserved every buck it is going to cost him!

    He drove off with pieces hanging off his car... I tell ya they're out there!

    Aussie tip:
    Don't leave your e-brake on in this weather. There's a good chance it'll freeze in place.

      There's a constant glaze of ice, hoar's frost and "black ice" on the roads around here. I have studded tires on but have still skated once or twice. The best bet is a light brake foot and working grey matter. But the Contour handles ice n' snow pretty well.

                Well Good news! I just rocked her back and forth until she finally broke free... The car i mean , but funny thing my truck was sealed shut also that same day and i couldnt get into it... Kinda funny how things freeze closed, but i did my donuts in a Church parking lot ..
                but the Honda would only cost him a mirror 50 bucks so hes not suffering to much

                  hmm, any advice on freeing an e-brake that is stuck open? this is really cutting down on the sliding, now I have to brake with my foot and lock everything up . Its still fun tho...

                      So this is what the car looked like before I dug it out and drove to work today.
                      I think it looks better covered in snow.

                      oh and I got the E-brake free, massive fun not fit for posting on this forum followed.

                        ^^^ Mine looks a lot like that one. Except mine looks kinda like a wagon, the way the snow drifted over it. And I think it's sitting a bit lower, too. It ain't goin' anywhere in this stuff.
