Yeah, I hate it so much that a few years ago when I drove a 2.4 Litre turbo diesel Ford Transit 12 seat van to the snow and back everyday for work, I pissed off the WRX driver who was trying to leave me behind.

Mind you, I doubt he knew the road at all, where as I could almost drive it blindfolded. Knowing every speed, and every gear change on every corner, helped keep my speed up. After almost 25 Kms I pulled up at the ticket box right behind him. Thankfully that was a day I had no passengers and only a few parcels, or I would had to drive responsibly.

p.s. I love driving in snow. Cant wait 'til winter again.

Beigewagon.

That looks like it was no fun at all.

Glad you suffered through it so you could show us how terrible it is.

Glad the snow finally showed up there! I know much of the state until a few weeks ago had been lacking in that dept.

Not too bad IMHO. But I'm one of those crazies that don't like driving in snow It snowed Thursday eve through Saturday late morning, and by Saturday eve the roads were dry already. Pretty much as soon as it stopped snowing, the sun came up and it warmed up to mid 40's. Gotta love Colorado
