Worst conditions you have tolerated driving in before

Sparked with this idea from the other condition thread, i propose another similar question:

Whats the worst weather you have decided to risk driving in to go boarding?



honestly i cant remember driving through any REALLY bad weather. Usually its just the occasional white outs or snow storms where you go 20 mph the whole way because thats how fast everyone else is going and there is nothing you can do about it. I dont think the worst conditions i have driven in stack up against others who live in very mountainous areas, so lets hear em.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

Worthless without pics or video

I'm sure wolf and I could put pretty much anyone else's stories to shame considering we're both long time professional drivers

But it's kinda pointless with no proof

I cant even think of one specific time.

I drove 90 miles to the twin cities during the blizzard that dropped 21" and collapsed the metrodome, but it was during the day and it hadn't gotten that bad yet. I guess I've had some pretty shitty drives across lakes too, lake superior in particular.

The worst I think is when the wind starts blowing and you get 3-4 foot drifts on the roads and you really don't have any other choice than to bust through them.

Drove from Denver to Omaha right after x-mas about 7 years ago. The storm that put 3+ feet down in Denver turned into an ice storm as it moved onto the plains. We were waiting to get out and return to work, so we drove about 6-12 hours behind that storm and saw at least 100 cars in the ditch that day, including real-time events where we saw cars just randomly lose it and burst into snow drifts. Tried to stop as the conditions just got harrier, but because of the ice, towns across the region were super fucked with no power and all the locals were moving into town and took all the hotel rooms and basically monopolized all the services. The town we stopped in was covered in an inch of ice, never seen anything like it, looked like someone came by and just shellacked the whole place. The last 2 hours was driving in 8inches of slush.

Driving to the mountains and over passes in a snowstorm to ride is always hairy to me, and its just pretty common, but that 8 hour turned 15 was a pretty crazy drive.
