Haha well the thing is i'm in michigan and its not so much driving in the snow its the fact that all of the roads are now covered in ice. There is more ice than there is pavement on the surface.

Haven't really had problems with the snow lately. It did snow about 5 inches once this year. Only problem I have now is sliding on the wet roads from the rain :x

A long time ago a friend and I were up skiing, and we were driving on a sheet of solid ice. I told him you know what you should do is pull up on the E-brake. I laughed, but I guess he thought I was serious. He pulled up on that E-brake as hard as he could and we spun around in about 8 complete 360 degree circles almost slamming into the side of rocks. He was a bit freaked out, but I thought it was hilarous. There weren't many cars around so there was no worry. I do not recommend doing this though, you will lose full control of your vehicle.

That's the thing with a good snow fall is the fun of driving and tring not to skid. Well I remember when I lived back in Pa, when we had a good snow fall it was always fun to go to the mall and do donuts in the parking lot before they plowed it. Then there was the trick of going down a hill with 6in of snow on the road and find yourself going down the hill sideways :twisted: oh the good ole days :D
