Next time any northerner says a word about heat gets me one upping their ass for the entire summer at every chance I get.

I don't mind the heat. I HATE using the AC. Drove around with my sunroof open and windows down in the 100 degree weather last summer.

Also, that's not how snow works. As long as you can get ontop of the snow, you don't need 8" of ground clearance to drive through it. Snow does indeed get packed down. I also drive on all season tires, and I will say it again, streets were unplowed and unsalted.

I do agree that the driving experience is a big part, however.
