So, here in Seattle we're snowed in. Consistently cold temps, several snowfalls atop an icy layer, and the lack of any significant roadclearing equipment have basically put the city into lockdown.

We're ok, I've got chains on all four wheels and the 4wd is adequate, so it's easy to get around, even up and down the icy steep streets signed as closed. The chains keep me under 30mph(they slap the fenderwells if I try any faster), but they make getting around in the stuff a virtual non-issue. Yet, I don't see many other vehicles with them. Odd. Also, Seattle people CAN'T DRIVE!!! We're basically staying in until we need to get to work.
