  • What’s Hwy 26 between 185th and Hwy 217 like right now? I have a dr appointment. After yesterday, I’d much rather stay home. πŸ™ #pdxtst #
  • Tripcheck cams show Hwy 26 lanes mostly clear. I guess I’ll go for it. #
  • Hwy 26 is clear in the lanes. Glad I didn’t chain up: tons of people pulled over to remove them, saw dozens of broken chains in the road. #
  • @Kent_Giard Plan on taking chains off BEFORE you get on any freeways. No room to really do it once there. Dangerous to try on shoulder. in reply to Kent_Giard #
  • @EricAppel Yeah, with all the deep ruts, changing lanes is about the most dangerous thing out there. It’s ridiculous. Stay safe! in reply to EricAppel #
  • @tlockney yeah, I’m of two minds about chains. They help, but the cost to infrastructure is high. I doubt ODOT can afford to fix the roads. in reply to tlockney #
  • Oh, the ignominy. Made it to my appointment and back without incident, only to get stuck at the foot of my own driveway. Had to dig out. πŸ™ #
  • @memathews Dr appt was actually unrelated to my back. Feeling OK. Shovelling snow/ice sure is good exercise! πŸ™‚ in reply to memathews #
  • Got a lot of the driveway shovelled while it was empty, what with my car stuck 10 feet away and all. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @atmasphere No kidding. Worst snow storm in 40+ years. And 6″ more expected by Christmas. in reply to atmasphere #
  • @turoczy But what a way to go! πŸ™‚ in reply to turoczy #
