I'm just wary of the ice we'll see tonight once the sun goes down.

But yes, anything over 2 inches and the DC area goes into snow-anarchy. If you aren't driving too slow causing people to slide, you're turned on your roof like a turtle because you figured the $60k SUV you bought is invincible to ice and snow. Or you take your vette out because it's the only vehicle you own and get stuck 17 times within 2 miles of your house.
Always love that. People just don't realize that four wheel drive doesn't mean shit when it's ice. It's just to truck through deep snow and mud. Those people always piss me off.

4 wheel drive just means that all 4 wheels will be spinning and sliding on the ice...

Re: F... winter

I'm on Spring Break, which means I (annually) get to drive home through a lake effect blizzard.

Only place in the world where Spring Break provides more accumulation than during winter break: Grand Rapids.

Re: F... winter

You know, as I sit here and polish off mt last glass of Blacksone Pinot Grigio I feel the need to vent.

To the SOB who fails to clean off of the top of his Van before he goes speeding down 495 @70 MPH with a ski resort on top of his vehicle...FU!

As if your blizzard like dusting is not noticeable by those of us who unfortunately had to ride behind your blinding wrath...FU!

Next time why dont you spare us the trouble and put your "Mystery machine" in the ditch so at least we all have something to gawk at, instead of being blinded by it...FU!
