Nothing like

being stuck behind countless numbers of stupid folks that don't have four wheel drive up north here, can't drive to begin with and don't seem to know what lanes they need to be in anyhow

One hour and ten minutes to make the fifteen minute trip home yesterday, can't wait to do it again tonight

Be nice if all the plow trucks just quit plowing and then folks would know what kind of vehicles they need up here!

Save the county alot of tax money also, salt/fuel/maintenance/wages/etc.

there's a flipside to that though. i had a 92 Plymouth Sundance that would go through snow like it wasn't there. Auto shop owner told me once that car had nearly perfect 50/50 weight distribution. I'd be doing my 15MPH thing getting home in snowstorms you couldn't see 50 feet in and have 4X4s go zooming by me. More than once I'd drive by them off the road a few minutes later.

4X4 will get you going, but it ain't gonna help you stop any better. It's the driver more than the vehicle.

Front wheel drive vehicles rock too!!

I had a 93 Mazda Protege for 5 years. That little car kicked ass in the snow!!
I drove that thing in the worst of storms and snow. I got it stuck once when I tried to drive through 12" of unplowed snow. Ooops....guess I found its limit considering the nose of the car was less than 9" off the ground. That was a fun little car. I'd drive around the snow whipping the tailend around.

With the right amount of momentum & driver experience - you can drive just about anything in the snow. Most people don't have any experience driving in snow and/or are too damn scared of it.

Try DC with it's transient population... (I.E. Diplomats from Kenya that have never seen snow). When it rain's here - traffic screams to a halt like there was 3 feet of snow on the ground... I'm not even going to get into when it snows here.

haha. ND seems to probably have some of the best-prepared-for-shitty-conditions drivers in the US!

It amazes me how every winter it's like people are driving in snow for the first time.
