Haha "Oh my god, this sucks." It looks like that here about one day a year. Here in Memphis nobody can drive on ice including me, we just play bumper cars. I got stuck in my 2wd dodge ram next winter I bought gmc z71.

lol no offense to Americans but I have to laugh when you guys get snow. We get crazy snow in Canada and I drive around with a grand am on all seasons just fine and when I was in school forget snow days if it just snows. There has to be like 10 ft snow drifts blocking routes or your going to school......man that used to suck.

The problem most places have in the US with snow is warm ground temps and black ice that gets coated with snow. It gets slicker than owl shit.

My Dad is a retired truckdriver and he told me he would much rather drive in snow in Canada than the US because of this. He told me "Its whole different kind of snow" lol.

I was going to say these aren't Americans they are southerners. We never see snow. We might get that once a year and when we do our rode crew is never prepared. It's not just snow it's frozen rain with just a little snow on an unpreped road.

There's a thing called studded snow tires. Any one of those cars could have made it with the right tires and momentum.

I've driven in CA (Ontario, Alberta and Quebec) and they are the same as in the US, ice is ice, unless you have studded tires or chains, you're SOL. Best place that I've driven in snow where I felt comfortable was in Alaska, there they keep the snow on the roads and after awhile, it packs up and is easier to drive, unless it rains then freezes up, lol! The last driver was a 4 wheel drive but had regular BF Goodrich tires which are not the best in snow.

Sad part is that some states won't allow studded tires. Can't recall if CO does or not.

lol that happened a few miles from my best friends house. His mom was laughing at all the idiots running into each other. People out here (UT and CO) get way too comfortable and think that 4wd will get you anywhere they forget it dosn't help you stop. I will say though that the storm was extremely cold for colorado weather I was there for christmas. It was -11 degrees on my car temp gauge that night and had thawed a bit during the day before making that road a sheet of ice. They ended up closing it to traffic for the rest of that afternoon fyi.

Sure we've heard of them, but that's pretty much it. It's not like we've ever seen them or own some. :) This is such a rare event in the south that we'd use tires once and the'd dry rot before we needed them again. And there's no way we'd ever be able to find where we stored the chains the last time we needed them. We'd have to run the dogs out from under the porch to look for them. :lmao:

Did ya'll here about the Canadian who got tired of shoveling snow?

One day there was a huge snow for about the 11th day in a row and the dude just lost it. He strapped the snow shovel to the roof of his car and headed south.

He stopped in Michigan and asked a guy at a gas station, "Hey, do you know what this is?" The guy replied, “Sure, it’s a snow shovel.” The man got back in his car and continued south.

He stopped again in Kentucky and asked a guy, "Hey, do you know what this is?" Again came the reply, “Sure, it’s a snow shovel.” The man got back in his car and continued south.

When he stopped again it was in Alabama. He asked a guy, "Hey, do you know what this is?" The guy replied, “Sure, it’s a shovel.” The man asked, “Do you know what kind of shovel?” And the guy replied, “I don’t know, a snow shovel?” Once again the man got in his car and drove south.

Eventually the man arrived in Miami, FL. He asked a guy at a gas station, "Hey, do you know what this is?" The guy replied, “A shovel.” The man asked, “Do you know what kind of shovel?” And the guy replied, “I don’t know, just a f*cking shovel.” The man phoned his wife and informed her that they were moving to Miami.

He was last seen headed west with a Cuban strapped to the roof of his car.

:thanks:
