Good morning, Netizens...
It is Thursday morning and egods it's here! When I arose at about 3:30 this morning, it was snowing outside, and although it was sticking on the lawn and atop the vehicles, the streets on the North Side of Spokane were navigable, even by Spokane's marginal standards, although I would wager that the South Hill and other higher areas of the city would be seeing different results.
What truly rattled my sense of humor is that Westbound Snoqualmie Pass was apparently closed for a short time this morning until everyone got their winter driving wings firmly attached by the Washington State Patrol. In this generation of bio-engineering isn't there a human DNA gene that causes people to drive over mountain passes with bald tires with no tire chains?
However, at 5:00 AM this the passes are open and most major streets in Spokane are wet. Depending upon whether you are driving on bald tires, your travel times may differ.
Welcome to the new frontier. It's that special time of year.
