While (I believe) there's been less precipitation then normal here in Pittsburgh, it's been consistently below freezing, so we've had some good snow buildup. And it's not been icy, nor has there been a miserable cold rain. Being a little colder then normal beats the just above freezing cold rain.
I have an old AMC Eagle, an all-wheel drive car designed in 1979 if you haven't seen one and can picture it. It's part car and part Jeep. It drives very well in the snow, and there hasn't been a storm in years where it has had any problems out here.
Once the first few snows get everyone in the mental frame for driving in winter again, it's not so bad driving out there, although I wish a few more people with neither the vehicle nor the skill for driving in the snow would just stay home. Although it often probably is because of our antique labor laws that make them have to go to work for one reason or another.
But, yeah, Cold, snowy and wonderful here.
