Winter driving

The scanner is strangely quiet this morning. There doesn't seem to be a lot of accidents at the moment, but the hills are a bit dicey. If you were planning to head into Spokane, you might want to find a route other than I-90. The westbound lanes look like a parking lot west of Havana because of a major accident near the Maple exit. Other than that, just be careful out there.

11 a.m. update: The roads are a lot worse now than they were at 7 a.m. Roads and parking lots that were plowed early this morning now look like they haven't seen a plow blade in days. And you end up doing more sliding than steering on corners. I heard something on the scanner about a semi backing down on hill it couldn't make it up, possibly on Forker Road. At least I-90 is flowing smoothly again. For now.
