Portland Winter Weather

It seems to be snowing everywhere I go (except home in SoCal)...

Driveway at my sister's house. The road outside is much worse. They didn't salt or plow the street and there's about a foot of frozen snow. It was pretty exciting trying to drive out, even with a new Acura MDX.

My sister's new car. Even with all-wheel drive, she still needed to put chains on the front tires to get out of the driveway.

A lot of the roads in Portland still have a thick layer of ice. When you drive over them, the car would sometimes slide sideways. Also, since the use sand instead of salt, the snow/ice doesn't melt and ends up blocking the storm drains and cause flooding.
