Greetings Portlanders. I've been walking around NE Portland a lot and have been seeing dozens of people trying to get out. When approaching many, they said they've been trying for 15 minutes rocking back and forth to break free from their arctic prison.
"How do I get out?" Here's a tip from a midwesterner.
After scooping out a little bit of snow, take out your floormats and wedge them under the front part of your tires that spin from your accelerator. You might wear a tad bit of felt from the top, but I GUARANTEE this works. Everyone I've helped thought it's brilliant, but it's really just simple physics. If you don't have any mats, just break down a cardboard box and do the same.
Now go out there and break free from Jack Frost's road rage!
