:eek:

So what part of the country do I live in.


Want a hint.


I live about a mile from were the Super Bowl is going to be played.

I got to say that this is just crazy, I have not seen ice and snow like this for at least 25 years.
Bad thing is we still have some ice on the roads and this is a dry snow so it makes the ice even slicker then ice alone.
I left work around 12:30 am and we already had over 3 inches (they said only 1/2 to 1 inch was going to fall) and had to go I35 South to I30 East and to get to I 30 East bound I had to go up and over both I30 and I35. This is a long steep over pass and I knew that it was going to be slick.
So I got up to 35 mph so I would not have to give it much gas to make it to the top of the overpass
Passed 3 Big Rigs and 6 cars, trucks that were stuck, sideways or sliding backwards.
1 guy in a BMW was just passed a Van and he was right in the middle of the road so I had to go left around the van then right around him. He was spining the back wheels like crazy and just sitting there going nowhere.
The Terrain just chugged up the over pass with out any problems and got me all the 22 miles it takes to get home.

Nice. That is a picture postcard.
Now I don't feel so bad. I live in Rochester, NY and we are up to 88 inches of snow this winter, and counting.

Very nice picture! I live in Quebec, and have found that the Terrain handles very well in our winter conditions.

I'm about 15 miles from where the Superbowl is being played so I know exactly what you mean. I blame all the cheeseheads in town for bringing the bad karma. :'( Having said that, I'm very impressed with how my 2WD Nox is handling it..especially since this isn't straight up snow on the road. I still get a bit of slippage on icy patches but it's very easy to control, and I haven't gotten sideways yet.

We could not handle 88 inches here, they had to bring in snowplows because of the Super Bowl so that helps with that somewhat.
I was born in Akron Ohio so I remember having snow for months and months.

1/2 the people down here would die if we got that much.

I'm a native Texan, and I'll admit that I wouldn't know what to do with that much snow...especially if it stayed around for weeks at a time. :eek:
