Hopefully the national attention Seattle is getting over the tour bus incident on I5 will shame the city into buying some snow-plows and *SALT*.

I had to get from Bothell to the airport Thursday AM during the worst of the snow. What a disaster. I grew up driving in Indianapolis (tons of snow at times) and have never seen a major interstate go completely un-plowed. There were many 4wd vehicles (including 1x search & rescue jeep, and one police explorer) that were stranded off the side of the road.

In fact when I arrived here in Indy it was ~35 degrees and not even snowing, yet they were putting down massive amounts of salt/de-icer even down to the local streets (i.e. not neighborhoods, but all of the main roads were plowed/salted).

Studded Tires & Tire chains are illegal in Indiana.
