Re: Let It Snow

Snow is melting in East TN. But it could snow again tonight and tomorrow from what my mom is saying. Kids had to go to back to school, two hours later.

I have a Honda Foreman 300 4X4 and the wife rides a 250 Honda Recon. Both of them get around just fine...they pull sleds great too.

Our next snow here is supposed to be on Friday through Saturday...talk already of it being maybe as much as the Blizzard of 09, its a huge storm system, plus we have the arctic temperatures...
I have been driving around our (new to us) full size Yukon. It has Auto 4x4 which only kicks in when a back tire spins which is nice because I don't have to switch back and forth. If you drive in 4x4 high/low on dry roads it can distroy your transmision.

Re: Let It Snow

We're going to get more snow. Actually we're going to get rain, freezing rain, ice, and more snow. Whatever comes down will freeze overnight. This is going to be a GD mess. I changed my mind. I hate the effing snow.

Not your transmission, but your transfer case, and only if the transfer case is locked. All 4 wheels on a car travel different distances (think turns) and if your xcase is locked, binding will occur because the front wheels travel a different distance than the rear wheels.

In snow, 4hi is more advantageous than 4lo. In snow, momentum is the name of the game, and 4lo will just slow you down. In most vehicles, it is no more aggressive, just provides lower gearing. Most people will never need a reason to use 4lo.

I think you mean the FourTrax 300. Those things are tanks. We've had several of them over the years. I wish I could find a decent used one now, actually. Absolutely bulletproof. I currently ride a Rincon 650. I had a Foreman 400 before, and loved it. The Rincon is a whole other class of 4wheeler, though. 4wd and it can fly.

You told me you'd drag me up a hill on a sled, still waiting.

Yeah, this snow business is getting to be like a broken record. It just started snowing here in Germantown about twenty minutes ago, right in the heart of rush-hour. The forecast call for more on Saturday. Global warming is revealing a different side.

My Daughter has to drive from D.C. to Frederick, She's a very good driver but some others are not.

I just spoke to my parents, who are in Georgetown, and they said it is just starting to flurry where they are. I am about 60 miles west of DC and we have about 2" on the ground already.

Re: Let It Snow

Yeah it's snowing in DC. Just flurrying right now but we're supposed to get 2-5 inches

Longtimefan, I commute from DC to Frederick 4 days a week. I feel for your daughter.

Anyone know about the snow this weekend? Apparently its supposed to snow for 2 days straight... any ideas on the total for the metro area?

I've heard anywhere from 10 inches to over 20....the forecast is holding tight to that...it is indeed supposed to snow from Friday to Sunday morning....
