Winter Driving Fail

Driving home on Rte. 101 in the snow today, I saw what I can only surmise was one driver's attempt to glide swiftly to his exit by turning his van into a monorail, using the highway guardrail and the adjacent snow bank as a makeshift approach ramp.
(Enter Jay's comment about the Simpsons' "Monorail" song here)
I gotta give him partial credit, though. From the looks of his tracks, he made it a good three or four car lengths along the rail before stopping.

All in all, between here and Portland, there were at least a half-dozen spinouts on I-95, with half of them involving big, manly four-wheel drive vehicles.

Like my momma used to tell me, life is like a box of f***ing morons.
