5. March, 2008 - Dear Minnesota drivers

When we get snow (about an inch during rush hour this morning), and you don’t know how to drive in it, please stay the hell off the freeways. A semi-truck driving 5 mph on the freeway with blinkers on has a driver who does not know how to drive in the snow. The 30-something white-knuckled woman driving 20 mph in the left lane of the freeway does not know how to drive in the snow. The 20-something kid in the pickup doing 60 coming up behind the 30-something white-knuckled woman does not know how to drive in the snow. If you need further examples, sit home and watch the damned traffic cameras, rather than venturing out and getting in the way of those of us who have someplace to be and would like to get there in one piece.

Thank you.
