Snow storm



So how was your driving this evening/night?

I drove 545 to the store just to see how it'll handle all the snow (winter tires)..then came back home after 2km to get the navigator and laughed at all people stuck

Gotta love high, heavy vehicle with nice 4WD

PS. I was surprised how much difference was between AWD setting (where 4wd kicks in as soon as it's needed) and 4H (all time 4wd and high/er suspension).

I just took the ///M out to try the Blizzaks since we have accumulation on the roads by my place. I was again impressed with the handling. I was trying my hardest to make it slide, but it stuck the turns nicely.
