  1. I’ve ridden my motorcycle in the summer in that area. 18′ + of snow on some of those roads would be scary on a snowmobile, much less a car.

    • I would agree… and honestly, nobody in the South knows how to plow roads right… even if they do it.

      Well they close a lot of the back roads over the mountains all winter. I used to love driving from Hendersonville NC to TN, thro the Pisgah National Forest but there is a point in that road that makes almost a 360 degree sharp turn with no guardrails… yup, not going that way. And driving from NC to TN along the most common route (I-40) can also be terrifying even in good weather because of the way those big 18 wheelers drive at breakneck speeds and tailgate.

  2. Up to 14 feet of snow forecasted on the top of Mt Baker the volcano by Friday morning at 10,000 feet: https://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lon=-121.81751649909312&lat=48.77664094650876

    Don Easterbrook the geologist at Western Washington University has proven that Baker’s glaciers have been advancing in recent years. With snowfall like this it doesn’t appear Baker’s glaciers are going to disappear anytime soon even though the alarmist, Socialist-loving Seattle MSM claims otherwise.
