Living in NC we get this all the time from the relocated Yankees.Being from the Cleveland area I have to say that the fine folks of atlanta need to learn how to drive.
+1 first time I hit snow in F1s my butt puckered and it takes a lot for that to happen. I park mine when snow is on roads and take the charger with all season tires. I can't wait til these crappy F1s wear out.Guarantee he is not running F1's LOL
Excellent pic for sure.
You are 100% right with that statement. Here in the Charlotte area (I'm over the boarder in SC) the city is not equipped to manage weather like this. I lived in WI and it's MUCH different up north. Salt trucks and plows up north make a big difference too. Here they spray a "salt brine" on the roads the night before and hope that does something.Living in NC we get this all the time from the relocated Yankees.
The problem is that snow here isn't the same as up North. Being warm, our roads retain heat and the first snow melts and turns to ice or the snow is wet and turns to ice in the evening when the temps drop and we don't have the equipment to deal very effectively with snow.
I lived in Detroilet for many years and I know where you're coming from, but things are different here. rangehat:
Our last storm was quite different because it was bitter cold and the snow was powdery. We usually get wet snow and if it happens late in the day it freezes and nothing moves. I've been in this situation in my Jeep and decided to just overnight it in a motel. Last straw was bumper to bumper on a slight incline and cars were just sliding off the road from a complete standstill. That's when I bailed out and drove over the curb and through some landscaping to get a room. Jeeps can be a LOT of fun. hyeah:I gotta side with 1badx on this one. As a lifelong New Yorker, who commutes to Charlotte every week for work, Czech is right the ice/snow may be different, but it's the technique that matters most. I covered about 40 miles of road down here during the height of the storm, and it was tricky, but not impossible.
