We had an ice storm here in Tulsa over the weekend. We got mostly sleet. The ground looks like it’s covered with snow, but it ain’t. The residential streets in our neighborhood are solid ice. We only have to drive three treacherous blocks to get to a main street. One of the two streets we have to drive on has ditches on either side instead of curbs. This morning as well pulled out onto our side street we saw ahead of us at the T-intersection not one but two cars in the ditch. It was so cute. They were parrallel to each other with their trunks up in the air. One car has been stuck there for two days. The second got stuck sometime between 5pm and 9am when we left the house.
I hope they’ll both be there when I get home so I can take a picture. You think the second driver would have been clued in to slow the fuck down. As we drove up the street with open ditches we could see a smashed wooden fence but no vehicle. I heard the crash yesterday when I took the dog out for a walk. I happened to be in the empty lot at the corner of the T-intersection. I looked up the street in the direction of the sound but didn’t see anything. I discovered this morning why. My view had been blocked by another fence and some vehicles. I didn’t want to hazard the street because there were fucking idiots driving on the ice.
I wouldn’t be surprised if I found a third vehicle in the ditch or crashed into the other two when I get home. Tulsa drivers for the most part are clueless how to drive under icy conditions. Even if you are capable of driving under such conditions it doesn’t matter because some dipshit will run you off the road or crash into you. Now I’ll leave you with the following: imagine someone driving their SUV on solid ice talking to someone on their cell phone.
Update – They were still there and here they are:
Here they are in relationship to the T-intersection.
