Since the majority of us see some accumulation of snow in the wintertime... Can you drive well in the snow?
I used to be able to... Used to have a Geo Metro, Chevy Cavalier and Chevy Lumina, and they were GREAT in the snow! But now I'm driving a minivan with bald tires, and it stinks in the snow! Even when the tires were brand-new, the van handled terribly in snow.
Its more of a question of WILL I?! I hate hate hate driving in the snow... so I really don't, unless its an emergency or I was already out and got surprised with it... in which case I tend to freak out the whole way home/there, but DO manage to get there!
I hear you there! I ended up having to call out of work yesterday, and I'm STILL mad about it. Unfortunately, Public Works here is about the slowest EVER, so it took them a really long time to plow our street. I'm hoping the snow will at least slow down overnight so I can go to work tomorrow!
It's the same here... they NEVER plow our street until a storm is over. We live on a hill, so if its been a heavy snow and we've been out all day there is NO way we can get to our house until they've plowed. Drives me nuts!
Yes, I can drive in snow pretty well. Grew up driving in the snow! I took my drivers license driving test during a snowstorm! . I went to college in a city that is #14 on the highest snowfall list and drove alll the time up there. And I always had small sporty cars and never had a problem.
