i was really impressed with how well it handled in the snow on the roads that werent plowed. I know some people bag on the traction control but i think it helps a lot in the snow.

Oh yeah the Foci's here were zooming at their usual speed, and the Cavaliers, going very slow and sliding all over, hahahahaha. Well, I mean I'm sorry, but hey they always rag on us.
Damn Amanda, that's alot. Have you gone out at all?

Now when people actually learn how to drive in the snow i'll be happy. And yeah i agree with that one CKA, my old car was a Cavi and i HATED driving that thing in the snow... even with new tires on the thing it would slide around in the snow.

It's a shame the chat room is still down...I'm bored silly

I snow blowed the driveway this morning, but I haven't moved my car. I like playing in the snow with the focus, but not in this weather....my main concern is always someone else running into me, not the handling of my car.

So the chatroom is down?? No wonder I couldn't log in. hahahhaha

Anywho, yeah if people learned how to drive in it, it would be better.
And if the city would give tickets out to cars that park on the streets and then they can't plow, so you can't get out, it sucks.
Thank god we found that dog, and his owner thanked us by plowing the street for us. That was cool.
