And I'm sure I don't have to tell you this, but who the hell DOESN'T use the E-Brake in the snow?!?! It's better than building a snow man. When it's icy or snowy I always yank it up before turning into the driveway. It used to be necessary on my old cars, but now it's just fun.
I'm not going to say you can't get where you're going by spinning tires up and down the road, but it's not a preferred method of travel. I'll admit that there are times when driving slow and steady will end up getting you stuck, but if that's the case you should probably just park it and wait.

And just because I'm living in NC doesn't mean I've never driven in snow.
