It's white, falls from the sky and acts like little gangstr's when in really large groups! Can be fun... sometimes not, in the wrong auto.

Snow with the wrong vehicle is even more fun! Even put cookie trays under the rear wheels of a fwd car and spin around in circles?

I learned to drive in the snow... Colo Spgs in the mid-80's, mall parking lot with no "stoppers" and 2-3" of "white stuff". That was a really Dry/Light snow. Fun times! Had a Toy Starlet (FWD) and an 80' Subaru (FWD/4X)... and learned early about AWD/4X...

Never did the cookie trays. Wanted to know I had control and how to correct for odd things. No cookie trays on the roads... just other id-10-t's!

AWD/4WD only helps you get going, doesn't help you stop.



I didn't learn to drive in the snow but I did learn to drive on a mossy hill in the wet in a lifted bronco on 35s and a 4 speed. It was fun! Probably why I love lack of traction so much. Really hoping for a bad winter here.

Yes... I also learned to STOP, w/a 4 speed. (LOL ...you funny! ...but so true!)

Also taught myself how to slide into a snowbank... getting out was another story. (3 days later...)
It took that long to get back and dig it out, after the storm. Fun times...

ONE time I was driving on the side of a mountain in NC at night, and the snow was falling. It gave me a since of vertigo so bad I had to stop and let my Co-Worker drive. Another time in Alabama, there was a "Black Ice" warning to stay off the roads. I decided then, snow is not to be driven in/on. BUT... An ATV and a hood from an old abandoned car as a sled is loads of fun in the snow.
