The answer to the title is: Drop 2″ of snow on their heads.
I made a run down to the flats yesterday to hit the credit union and pick up some polyurethane for a floor re-finishing gig I’m currently working on. I left Ned with some light snow falling and by the time I reached Boulder it was coming down pretty good. The normal drive from the credit union back to 28th street (about 3 miles) normally takes about 5 or 6 minutes. Yesterday it took an hour and a half….Why you ask? because Boulderites are stupid arrogant idiots in the snow.
First of all, a good majority of the vehicles are not snow friendly. Us mountain folk know that 4 wd is a necessity to life.
The second major problem is Boulderites think the world revolves around them and they deserve special treatment, Like the right to enter an intersection even though it is over filled…Sane and competent drivers realize that a green light is good provided there is room for you to proceed.
Every single intersection was completed jammed with grid-lock in both directions. I would stop at a green light knowing that the only reason to proceed would be if a space opened up on the other side of the intersection…common sense to me.. but well beyond the grasp of the thousand of morons about me….typical Boulder idiots!
Once I hit the mouth of the canyon, the road was still just a slick and snowy but I made the 17 miles to Ned in half the time it took to go three stinking miles in Boulder.
