Sounds like minneapolis when people drive with snow. I went up there last weekend and it had barely started snowing and I saw one car way up in a ditch and one that hit a concrete wall. All you can do is shake your head.
Yeah, I am. But it's not too far from the truth. Any light sprinkling and everyone slows down 30mph on the freeway like they don't want their car to melt or something if they drove through water too fast. I see about 3-5 accidents every morning on my morning commute (45 minutes) when it rains. Sometimes it happens right in front of me. It's sad.
Last week there was a traffic backup for about 2 hours because some joker left a dixie cup full of water in the middle of the freeway. Everyone panicked and didn't know what to do so everyone stopped and drove around it.
I got a look but that was about it. People in the Midwest forget how to drive when they see a single snow flake it's terrible. It's like ok you've lived in WI for how long and you forget how to drive in 5 months?
Did he like that response or did you have to repay the favor with 200 pushups? Crime definitely slows down here in the cold and the rain. We love it. But accidents go up. We can't drive in SoCal if there's so much as a drop of water on the road.
we had schools closed for a couple of days because we were -25 or something like that. My instructors didn't care, told us to suck it up since crime doesn't stop for -25 degrees to which I responded, that's true, but I'll bet my ass it slows down!
A lot of organizations have reciprocity for race licenses or they charge some nominal fee for acceptance. I couldn't imagine 21F. When it got down to low 30F here, I think half the office called in sick. The only ice we like is in our margaritas.
Yeah it's 21 flipping degrees here and it's still snowing, 45 degrees in WI is like t-shirt weather, especially after this last winter. Does WERA do anything with CRA then? I know we accept the license's to race at BIR, or at least I thought I checked in a few...
WERA is a national sanctioning body so I chose them instead of the regional only stuff. The cool thing is getting your invite to the Nationals in Atlanta.
I hear ya about letting time go by. We weren't all born cops and a lot of us made mistakes. It's how we overcome it that makes the difference between us and them. Some people blame life and use it as an excuse to fall further down into the gutter. Glad he is going on the right path and the clinic should be a good experience to see the wrong road up close.
We had mid-60s weather all day but now it's getting a bit chilly at low-50s and probably dip into the 40s at night. I hate the cold. We Southern Californians start dying off at 45F and below.
