My girlfriend and I took a weekend roadtrip and Ikea run to Pittsburgh for Columbus Day weekend. On Saturday, we spend most of the day driving around some of the city's neighborhoods, wandering up and down the hills south of the Monongahela River, among many other places. We couldn't help but think "How do they drive around here during the winter, after a snowfall, without killing themselves?" Snow removal in flat-as-a-pancake Buffalo and somewhat-rolling Cleveland is already a challenge, and driving in freshly fallen snow even more so. How about Pittsburgh? How does the city and surrounding towns deal with snow on streets that seem to climb hills at 30 degree angles? How do drivers deal with it?
