I gather there's some kind of Portland-Seattle rivalry, so it shouldn't be surprising that our local CBS affiliate's 11 pm newscast has just spent the last few minutes showing us scenes of cars attempting . . . and failing . . . to drive in hilly, snowy conditions. In Seattle.
There were videos of two different cars sliding down hills, ending their slides only by crashing into other cars. And one of a city bus sliding so wildly that it did a 180 degree turn during the slide.
It does make me look toward Portland as being somewhat more competent, since last night's news cast showed city officials putting chains on our TriMet buses.
