I always get a grin when driving in snow, watching the SUV's fly by me (hey, I got 4wd, I'm invincible!), and then seeing them rubbing a guard rail a few miles down the road. Around here, that happens a lot.

Yep, people fail to realize that even though 4 wheel drive allows them to go faster in the snow than if they didn't have it, it definitely doesn't make the vehicle handle better or brake better. ABS helps some on the braking, but the distances are still a lot longer.

I am glad to see some of those SUVs being used in "inclement" conditions. I get tired of California telling us to conserve fuel and then seeing 5 lanes of SUVs there that have never been in snow or mud. I guess it is "Thank God " for little favors because most of those SUVs never go any further than the end of the blacktop. That leaves some back country for me.

Well, done seen it all today.....went to work and as I was driving to the hospital a Detroit police car (marked car) pulled up next to me. His roof top flashers were encased in snow and ice.....couldn't tell if he had them on, it was so bad!

Makes me think I'm living in a world full of idiots!

On another note, I was in Centreville on Friday for a hearing. Passed a farm for sale on 213 on my way into town. It is 155 acres. Any idea what the owner is asking for it? The number of geese in the area was insane. One of the fields off of 301 must have had 10,000+ in it and they were still piling in as I was driving by. It pained me to work on Friday after seeing that.
Fabs was that farm on the left just after you turn onto 213 going into Centreville? Little pond on it? If so lots of deer there too. Turkeys now also. Too many people movin in the area there now. Go up the road in QA county though. less people and nicer folks. I think a realtor may own part of that farm..so the price will be high

Yep, that is the farm. Right before you get to the little shopping center with the McDonalds in it that is right across from a little development of newer homes. I figured it would be "expensive" since it is right next to the "shopping center". It was kind of sad to see homes right next to the courthouse that were in disrepair, but I guess that is life. The geese on that farm was insane.
