    It’s the only occupation where one can consistently be a screw-up, without repercussions.

    You should see the L.A. news stations every time they get even a little rain. It's always STORMWATCH 2023.

    When I moved from Oakland back to LA in 1999, I-5 and 58 were both covered in a solid sheet of ice and I-5 was shut down but 58 was barely open so I didn't have any choice but to take 58 over to 14 to get through Palmdale down to LA.

    Ah, yes, I've run that route on more than one occasion... even CA-14 has some nasty curves in those canyons as a driver gets closer to L.A. Nasty in bad weather, I mean... no big deal in fair weather. :rolleyes:
