How many people here live where it snows regularly? Any how many of those people just want to reach out and smack people when they are driving in said white stuff?
This weekend coming home from my gf's house, it was snowing harder than I have seen it snow in a long time. I mean, if i could see 1/4 of a mile in front of me, I was happy. It was snowing so hard that the snowplows couldnt keep the roads clear, even though each one only had like a 3-5 mile stretch. And here people are PASSING me (and others) in the fast lane. I was already going 55-ish, sometimes 60, and I thought that was plenty fast given the conditions. Yet I had people blowing past me and passing everything in sight.
I admit I passed a few people, but I did it on freshly plowed stretches, and I only did it becuase the people in front of me kept hitting their breaks (for those of you who have never driven in snow, hitting the breaks while it is snowing is bad). So, yes, I did pass people, but that was more for my safety than it was me wanting to get home faster.
Im just glad that I drove home and not my gf, cuz I woulda been goin crazy. The only people I trust to drive in weather like that are myself, my dad and my step-dad. My dad is a semi driver, so he drives for a living, and he has lived in this part of the country his hole life, so he knows how to drive in snow, and my step dad is a cop, so he is fully trained on how to drive (and drive fast in some cases) in the worst conditions. If anyone else is driving or around me on the highway, I go insane, becuase I dont trust them to not do something stupid.
Yea... so.. anyway... thanks for listening to my rant and if anyone has anything to add (like if this happens to you or you are one of the crazies who pass people or anything relevant to the topic) feel free to post it.
