problem is it's hard to predict what it's gonna do down here. We haven't had this much snow this frequently in YEARS. They're getting better about putting salt/sand/brine on the roads ahead of time but snow just doesn't happen enough for folks to get used to driving in it. Hell it's sleeting right now with very little warning. I have a front wheel drive car and I know to take it easy, but I see people in pickup trucks passing me on the highway at 50mph and then see them in a ditch a half mile up the road.
On the bright side a lot of folks in my Jeep club usually make a few bucks in tips by pulling people out of ditches every time there's snow on the ground. They don't ask for money and they refuse to take any from someone with kids in the car, but it's kind of a good example to the community of how folks with big giant Jeeps aren't all destructive a-holes.
