I went out last night.

No need for 3-point turns when it's like that. Crank left, gas, and u-turn on a dime.

I have a new appreciation for the XI. While people were getting stuck and ended up in ditches I was doing cirlces around them. If I started to slide I would just correct with ease. I did have to give 2 people the finger on the highway thou .. they cut me off and going into my lane .. almost pushed me into a snow bank. Either way .. I love my XI .. dunno if I would trade it up for anything else.

For me, the pain was moving my car so I could shovel. It was three feet deep ont he roof of the car. Much shoveling, and two handfuls of rock salt later, I was done.

I love this stuff for the snowmobile ... we defently got alot in 24hrs thats for sure ... people should learn how to drive in this weather so if they ever get caught in it they know how there car is gona handle ... 20kmph on a open queensway is not acceptable... snow on the road is like fighting a war and all the other cars are your worst ememy but they have a weakness and you can use there overwelling momentum in your favour ... stay behind vehicles that are much bigger then you and you will allways be safe

Keywords today are (correct with ease)
