It’s funny seeing the weather here in DC. I live in southern Maryland about 40min south of DC proper. Since I moved here in 2019 I’ve been trying to understand this thing called winter lol… It definitely seems the true New England weather starts somewhere between DC and Baltimore. It gets cold here (compared to Houston) but I can usually drive quite a bit during the winter. Outside of the intermittent bouts of snow and rain.

I lived in DC for 6 years, several of those with an old 1972 Opel gt. Winter was a strange fickle thing. Once we had 4 inches of snow and a Chevy blazer went sideways into the back of my little car at a stop sign. I got out to look, nothing on my car, her door was caved in. She said"I don't understand! This is four wheel drive!".

My daily is a Touareg TDI… getting to drive it in the winter here is like playing GTA. All these chumps in their shit boxes struggling to go straight and my computerized 4WD is not even phases lol! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)

Is winter that time of year the AC is not running 24/7? We just pulled the cars out of storage. With luck we will get four months of driving weather.

Drive on - secret German coating means snow, mud and salt spray can't touch these cars!

I usually get my car out one more time after Thanksgiving. May not happen this year. Not thrilled about it, but just too much to do. :-9
