We had some pretty harsh weather (for western Oregon) recently. We had snow, rain, hail and freezing rain all within the same day, and it carried on for a week or so. I've seen lots of extremes of winter weather driving skills - from 17 cars abandoned at the bottom of our hill because it was too slick to make it all the way up (not that they didn't try!) to people running chains on bare pavement at 50 MPH and trailing sparks behind them. Being a Utah boy, it just kinda makes me smile.
