Lmao, I was in Iowa in winter of 2013 going to school, I’m from Texas and the first day I was there they got like 8 inches of snow and I had to literally crawl on my jeans to try and get to the shuttle, but about halfway through, I was like fuck this 😂😂

u/mishap1 Dec 26 '22

He needs to be trying that in the sidewalk (or grass/dirt) rather than in the street downhill of several cars that aren’t exactly stable. Uphill guy could probably accidentally dislodge the pile just by holding one for balance.

u/ParttimeParty99 Dec 27 '22

No way. Gotta be heroin or fentanyl. I was addicted for 10 years and took a motorcycle in a snowstorm across state lines because it was the only option. If there's a chance to get well, an opiate addict will get there no matter what.

The ice in Seattle was no joke, everything was covered in a thick ass ice layer that day and it was impossible to move anywhere.

u/onlycatshere Dec 26 '22

I used a floor scraper as an "oar" to scoot myself around lol... The only better way to do it would've been ice skates or crampons.

Helluva balance/fast twitch muscle exercise, it's days later and my entire body is still sore

u/Zediac Dec 26 '22

The only better way to do it would've been ice skates or crampons.

Crampons refer to a specific style of ice cleat. You don't really need full on crampons. There are several styles of slip on ice cleat that are so good that you can run on ice safely but are also low profile and relatively cheap. Here is a video showing that with good ones you can run on ice.

Avoid Yaktrax. They're awful. They give bad ice traction and terrible dry floor traction.

You want spike style slip on ice cleats.

Here's a cheap option from Due North for casual use. If you're willing to spend a bit more then these are a great upgrade that are more durable with better grip. If you want to spend a bit more, the best casual ice cleats, IMO, are Stabilicers Maxx 2.

I've spent my professional career working outside including in winter. This type of ice cleat is a life saver. I keep a pair in my car every winter.

u/BoltgunOnHisHip Dec 26 '22

I was in Portland for the 2013 "snowpocalypse."

It rained, froze, snowed on top of that, then rained again. So you had this hellish ice sandwich where the top layer was juuuuust thick enough to need effort to punch through, and if people had already walked over it you had two layers of ice slipping on the compacted snow, so even cleats/yak tracks/other traction devices didn't help much.

2

u/srcarruth Dec 27 '22

and Seattle is so steep! people don't know that. we were iced up in Portland but it was a flat walk to the beer store so I was fine

2

u/PolyZex Dec 26 '22

This is normal for most of the northern parts of the country- it's just most places have a supply of salt to solve the problem.

7

u/spacetrucker85 Dec 26 '22

Nah it’s different. I spent most of my life in Montana but I live in Oregon now. In 36 years I never saw anything as slick in Montana as it was here on Friday. Luckily it doesn’t last long, the ice was all gone by Saturday night and it was 60° today. Montana is still in for three more months of snow.

56

u/[deleted] Dec 26 '22

Gahhhh the comments on these posts are killing me. Y’all have no idea what “freezing rain” is & it shows. It’s not snow. It’s nothing like snow. EVERY surface was coated in ice, making EVERY surface equally slick. We aren’t “better prepared” or “more skilled” or “have ice cleats” for this shit because it only happens once every 10-20 years. Bump your car parked on an incline & it’s gonna slide, doesn’t matter how your wheels are turned or if the parking brake is on. Coat trees & powerlines in ice & all kinds of shenanigans ensue. Freezing rain is the only thing like freezing rain, & if you haven’t experienced it you don’t know what you’re talking about.

u/Pneumothoraxad Dec 27 '22

Ice like this isn't a normal occurrence in Seattle so why would we prep for it? This has never happened here in my lifetime and my parents who have lived here their whole lives hadn't seen anything like it either.

-23

u/pokemin49 Dec 27 '22

I've been to Seattle multiple times. It's cold and rainy. You should absolutely be prepared for this possibility. It's like living in California and not being prepared for an earthquake because "It didn't happen that I can remember, hyuk." Don't make excuses for the negligence of your leaders.

11

u/Pneumothoraxad Dec 27 '22

The fact that you've visited makes you more knowledgable than a local? Cold and rain doesn't = freezing

Seattle often doesn't even get snow. Why allocate resources to something that isn't a regular problem, let alone an ice storm that has never happened before?

u/ManateeDream Dec 27 '22

Blithering idiot, typical MAGA moron, so desperate to score any points against (((((THE LEFT))))))) he has to make himself look a fool cause he “visited multiple times.” Lol. Shut up you brain dead sheep, you obviously have no idea what you’re talking about and the grasping, impotent fecal matter that is your comments are pathetic. Go consume more Fox News, and get that daily dose of STIGGINIT that lets you and your cancerous views spread evil across the globe.

Anyway, First time in 30 years I’ve ever seen something like this, and it was so bad it shut down seatac airport for almost two days straight, something that has never happened.

I had to walk up and down about 3/4 of a mile of this to get to my cat sitting clients, and busted my ass even though I had spikes on my shoes. Was no joke.

-1

u/Rusty-Shackleford Dec 27 '22

Your cat sitting clients? By clients do you mean the cats, or the owners of the cats?

In either case, I'm pretty sure the cats would have been fine for 24 hours, not worth you breaking your bones crawling up an icy hill.

3

u/someshooter Dec 27 '22

I mean cats. And the owners don’t want to hear what you wrote. It’s irrational but it’s reality in my experience.

-1

u/Rusty-Shackleford Dec 27 '22

The owners of the cats would want you to hurt yourself in an ice storm to make sure they got their poop box cleaned? This feels like a horror story on r/antiwork

u/lizw80 Dec 26 '22

Nope, those were covered in ice too. Literally everything was. Trust me. I live here.

9

u/atomicpope Dec 26 '22

I think the point is: you can pull yourself up by the fence. And grass/unpacked snow is also going to have a heck of a lot more grip than smooth ice. In any case, crawling up a slope that cars are sliding down uncontrollably is probably not the safest idea.

5

u/ManateeDream Dec 27 '22

This is what was covering the grass, the sidewalks, roads and hills. It’s actually after it spent several hours melting and I went out and cracked the ice, breaking a piece to examine it. This is the thick layer of ice that was covering EVERYTHING. Some place there are no grass to walk. I had to go to work at night and got stuck there, had an Uber home, then fell three times in my parking lot on my way home. It was an absolute nightmare and no one sees how bad it was just from seeing pictures that look like it’s just snow. It wasn’t, it was a quarter inch layer of ice over everything!

Also? When you fall and slam your hand into ice frozen grass? It feels like you’re smashing your hand through shattered glass. Ask me how I know.

13

u/lizw80 Dec 26 '22

Again: nope. I get where you’re coming from. I thought the same. Then I went outside and almost fell on my butt—on grass. Gravel? Also pure ice. Fence? Ice. Tree trunks—ice. It was wild.

u/stupid_reddit00 Dec 26 '22

Just curious. How well do you thing putting your socks on your shoes would help in this situation? I have enever experienced natural ice before so it's quite amusing to me.

u/TL-PuLSe Dec 27 '22

Literally would make zero difference. A grippy surface on a practically frictionless surface is still frictionless. You needed spikes of some kind and even then it's marginally better

u/Candid_Calligrapher6 Dec 26 '22

In Canada (and probably other countries where snow and ice is imminent), sand is sprinkled on the roads and sidewalks to provide traction.

In the video all I see is pure ice. You could probably wear your skates outdoors and have a better time getting around.

I am from Seattle. This was a once in a generation type occurrence. No one was prepared for this. I've never seen anything like it. Every surface covered in ice. Even the grass was difficult to walk on. A lot of people seemed to expect it to be just like having snow but it was 10x worse in terms of ability to travel.

7

u/Moehrchenprinz Dec 26 '22

Folks in Seattle aren't used to dealing with ice and therefore less prepared than Swedes.

Meanwhile, Swedes would drop like flies during the kinds of heat waves that the state of Washington gets hit by. Peak temperature for that state was 63°C last year and 43°C this year.

Some people from Europe don't understand how big the US is. We have huge areas of the country which deal with winter weather with no issues. And other areas where snow is a very rare event and they have problems when the once in a decade storm hits. Sweden is basically the size of the upper Midwest, where we have no problem dealing with the snow.

u/didntcondawnthat Dec 27 '22

The US has a huge variety of climates, depending on where we live. That kind of ice is something that nearly never happens in Seattle. So the roads aren't treated in the same ways they are where snow and ice are common.
