Day 28

mid-day addition: there is some kind of weird satisfaction i get from being able to maneuver my honda accord coupe better than these huge four wheel drive vehicles around me. dc is notorious for having people who can not deal with any form of liquid on the roads. the problem is compounded when that liquid is in some kind of solid state. to make matters worse, there is the sense that if i "throw money at the problem" and buy a gigantic gas guzzling 4x4, i will all of a sudden be the greatest driver in the world. dc proves that is not the case over and over. not only that, but you just made yourself THAT much more dangerous by adding a ton or two of metal careening towards stationary objects along the road.

at the end of the day, it doesnt matter what kind of car you are driving, if you are a bad driver/cant drive in the snow, please dont endanger my life or the lives of those around you by taking on a few inches of snow. its not worth it.


ps bicycles and snow do not mix. to the man that tried to ascend the hills on 20th street nw (not that big of a hill... but he succeeded at blocking a lane of traffic for 2 blocks, taking him almost 10 minutes to get through), please walk, bus, or get a better bike.
