Get a snowbrush, pal

This guy was on Route 3 today with 6 to 7 inches of snow piled up on his car. When I took the picture, we were stopped in a traffic jam close to Exit 12 waiting for a crash to be cleared. (Click on the photo for a closer view.)

If you look through the driver's side window, you can see the mound of snow on his hood. It almost looks like snow on the side of the road, but it's not.

What could have caused that crash? Here’s one possibility: Perhaps a virtual landslide of snow coming off a car blinded and panicked the driver behind.

When I caught up to this numbnut, he was gabbing on his cell phone while peering through the portals he dug in the snow drift that covered his car.

A DPW truck with its yellow lights flashing went by us on the right carrying an emergency sign to close down the breakdown lane, which is used at this time of the day as a third travel lane. Taking this as a cue, Numbnut whipped the abominable snow car into the breakdown lane to race after the truck.

Oblivious to everything and everyone around him, I guarantee that this fellow has no idea that he did anything wrong or was a danger to other people this morning.
