    It's not even snowing here...pouring rain and it's like 34-35degrees.

    Driving down a back country 2lane highway today, there's this fullsize truck on its side up ontop of an embankment up a hill. ?????

    The first thing I noticed - was he had mud terrain tires on. NOT a good idea in this kinda weather. The road was windy/twisty and he was probably going WAY too fast.

    Oh, and all this rain ...temps dropping down to 29 degrees tonight. I gotta go to work at midnight. The ride is gonna be interesting.

    On the basis that in the term '2x4' the first number denotes the amount of driven wheels and the second denotes the number of wheels, perhaps a 2x2 is a 2 wheel drive motorbike? Never seen one of them before.

    Going onto 3 inches so far in Central VT and expecting 6 more. Road as terrible and I'm enjoying the laughter when passing all the people that has spun out

    I've seen a 2wheel drive motorcycle. One was being shipped to Vt and had crossed our dock in a crate. Had a chain going to the front wheel which had a sprocket. Some type or torque tube set up. I asked one of the Vt drivers and he was familiar with it. Said this thing is unstoppable.

    Found it..... http://www.rokonworld.com/history.html

    I know what 2x? is.....I was making a point that 2x2 is not something you hear. Thanks for your help there Albert Edison.

    It snowed pretty hard here this morning on the island but then it turned to rain. I think it's snowing again. They said we were gonna get 6 inches but I doubt it. Didn't see any accidents but alot of fishtailing. People just don't know how to drive in this weather.

    Here in Crapchester we got about 6-8 inches of snow, like driving in mashed potatoes.

    I was driving up to logan airport in Boston and encountered a strip of black ice on Rt. 93.
    I saw brake lights in front of me and when I tried to slow down the ABS kicked in. Then I noticed cars and SUV's spinning in front and in back of me.
    I kept lightly tapping the brakes and was able to keep my Taco straight but I had NO traction to stop. Cars were bouncing off the jersey barrier and I thought there was no way I was gonna make it. Then I caught some pavement and was able to slow to a stop. I was waiting for a hit from behind but thankfully never got one. I got by the wreckage and made it to the airport.
    I love my Taco!

    Man I miss the snow for about an hour... then it can go away :D Give me enough to play in for a short time and that's enough for me...

    It sure is pretty though...

    Yup, that sounds about right for me.

    Down here in PA - it's pathetic. The weatherman can't predict shit. They'll get the entire area all hyped up for snow - and the shovels & bread/milk all disappear from the stores and all we get is RAIN.

    I wish it'd dump 12" on us and be done and over with!! None of this..... I think it's gonna snow, but it could be rain, freezing rain, or just nothing.

    I HATE that feeling. As soon as you start to slide and lose traction, you start seeing these images in your head of what it's going to look like.

    Congrats. Glad to hear you got out of that one without any damage. :proposetoast:

    As of this writing I am up to 17 inches of snow. I am going to don my winter gear and get the snow blower out and clean up the driveway. The wind was so bad and constant it sounded like a twelve hour train going by the house. I do have some drifts that are about 3 feet, but not many. We are do for another storm late tonight/tomorrow and then yet another one Christmas eve, which will have us in the 2-4 feet range.
