A little peek at conditions in our area...

Spokane is a hilly city, with poorly drained and poorly graded roads; which spends about 30% of the year at under 32 degrees, and raining or snowing.

This is the inevitable result:

We were actually driving up that hill a few weeks back, on the day of the first big snow in fact; and while it wasn't nearly that bad, it took us about 15 minutes to get a couple hundred yards up the hill because some genius decided to stop and parallel park right in the middle of the hill, right in front of us in a way we couldn't get around him.
