Funny exchange betweet Trimet rider, Trimet, and several tweeters about training that operators get for winter

As all of us current and former Trimet  bus drivers know there is no actual training for snow and ice conditions. A rider, stunned at all the buses spinning out, asked Trimet what kind of training drivers get. I answered none, and then another person said none. Then Trimet twitter chimed in and said that all the drivers did get "inclement weather" training. We all know that's bullshit. The conversation is noted below the break and at the bottom of the post are the "real" directions on how to drive in snow and ice.  Trimet does not teach any of that.
