I love watching stuff like this. Im from Vancouver, and every year some one has to insist that "people out east are better at driving in the snow" and i get asked "why does 18" of snow slow down your whole traffic network?". Well we get maybe a foot of snow a year, and for a week it takes 20min longer to get to work. The rest of the winter its usually scattered showers and 5'C, or its -2 and sunny. Looks like that extra 5 months of practice a year doesnt help anyways.

as a pgh. native - here's the scoop...
Tues was an ice warning. PAT was to salt the hill but the salt truck driver decided he needed chains before attempting the hill. The road was noted as salted even though the salt truck guy never returned to do it after putting the chains on. PAT is going to use GPS to keep track of the roads that were/weren`t done.
