    So I leave my house at a normal time (5:50 EST) to get to work around 6:30, this morning however was different, it was a fkn skating rink out there, peeps sliding all over the place, tractor trailers unable to get up hills etc etc. So what normally takes me 30-40 minutes took me 2 fkn hours!!!!! I was 45 minutes late for work, and yet I was still the 3rd person in the building haha. The entire central part of ct. was basically closed down.

    I did have fun coming in tho, mad JDM one handed drift waves coming outta the heep this morning.

    w00t!

    Bring on the snow!!!! Code WHITE!

    I was looking out the window when I got in to work and I happen to look out just as an accident occured. some jacka$$ decided to slam on his brakes forcing the guy behind him to rearend him, the guy that hit the dood infront of him was probably sliding at about 10-15 mph and it caused a great deal of damage. I was LMAO at the sight of it sitting at my desk...haha...or maybe its cuz I work at an Insurance company and realize that the guy that hit the other guy is going to get fux0red on his renewal policy.

    I think that having 4WD wouldn't have helped today. If anything, a heavier vehicle would be harder to control on the icy roads, especially in stopping. And there was something on tv about how expensive SUV's are to fix in bumper crash tests.

    Around Bunker Hill in Boston, a garbage truck and a school bus were stuck for several hours on the icy streets until the sanding trucks could arrive.

    yeah, but it was all ice at 6am this morning, I seriously was stuck staring at my parking spot outside of work for 10 fkn minutes as all of rt 229 was backedup from I84 being a parking lot. I was contemplating throwin that bish into 4wd and going over some small pine trees to get into the parking lot, but I dont think the old security gaurd here would have appreciated that.

    lol

    and ICE and 4wd go nicely together, 4wd drifts babyyyyyyyyyyyyy

    we got about 6 inches in Minneapolis last week and I was damn glad I shelled out the extra 300 for the factory LSD when I got my b16... even with all seasons it pulls like a pro through the snow
