Yay for snow......not. Always hated driving in it especially when it all turns to brown and gray sludge on the roads. Looks gross then. Still remember the hilly roads of Oklahoma. Driving down a hill slowly, go to stop and the wheels are no longer turning but the car is still moving. Wondering if the car will stop b4 it slooowwwly slides into another car ahead of you. All happening in slow motion. Such fun.

I like snow for fun, snowboards and jet skis. Went to NY last year to visit sis-n-law and gotta plenty.

I also remember driving in OK and Dallas,TX with snow. And also hated the sludge that turned brown. But when I drove through it, I had a wrangler 4x4 at one point and a All-Time 4x4 98 CRV. Then the snow-sludge was plenty of fun.

Did you have to go to work in that? Knowing TX, most places here just closed down because it isn't a common report and only a select few are prepared for it.

That would need to be some deep snow to drive a jet ski at any speed through it.
