    The DC area always does horribly with snow. Part of it is the weatherpeople always somehow missing the big storms. Part of is, as Kepler said, is people not knowing how to drive. Trust us, being shocked at how much the city shuts down for a handleable storm anywhere else is not going to change.

    • The hardest hit area in Virginia got 14+ inches of snow (if I saw the Twitter reports correctly). Even many northern states would have trouble keeping up with that.

      Motorists were warned of the incoming snow. They chose to travel in those conditions anyway.

        Yeah it is interesting...sometimes I think he is having some sort of slow burn psychotic break. Then again I think most stats nerds do at some point. Their overinflated need to quantify everything overrides the part of their brain that understands Heisenberg. They are the guy at Cal Tech who spends all day trying to find the pattern in how pigeons eat. The NFL is about 5 years away from that...

          "I know how to drive in snow, it's all the other drivers who don't" is always the mentality.

            Yeah I don't know what Scooby is going on about...even here anything over an inch and the top news story is "200 accidents reported by MNDOT" and "traffic was held up for hours because some truckdriver jacknifed". 15 hours is pretty ridiculous but if something like that happened in many parts of Minnesota/Wisconsin/Iowa it could be many hours before things get going again.

            • It happens all the time in Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, and parts of California. Sometimes, even with warning, things go south faster than expected and can't keep up.

                Oh, the Lake Tahoe snowstorm from last weekend? I'm still seeing TikToks of cars buried along the highway to the ski resorts.

                      The third part being, as we've seen with the pandemic, the hubris of the average dumbass 'Merican "no one can tell me to stay off the roads just cause of a little snow. I got things to do, places to go"

                          It is ironic because it feels like half the city is Ivy League grads who learned how to drive in snow in Hanover and Ithaca and Cambridge. They should know better.

                              But they may have not been native to those areas, and quickly forgot. DC has people who have moved in from everywhere, so you have a mix of those who do and don't know how to drive in the snow, but those who do will likely stay in to avoid those who don't. Bad money chases good money out of the market.

                                I would think Minnesota and Colorado are the absolute pinnacle of American snow driving. Lots of opportunity to practice, stable state infrastructure funding, and a relatively lower percentage of I Am Emperor of the Highway conservative dooshnozzledom than Iowa, the Dakotas, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

                                The best snow drivers I have seen were in California of all places. The worst are Boston; not just the aggro but the sheer ineptitude.
