Don't let it deceive you.

Snow is nice in the pictures. But in reality, when it's cold as **** outside, and the snow begins to turn brown/slush, you'll hate yourself for living in an area with it.

No snow in chicago? Draco didn't roll thru? This is my first set of snow tires for my TL.....almost as good as my 4runner in the snow 8" deep.

Snow was easily my favorite part about living in Colorado. Just like my favorite part about northern california in the winter is the obscene amount of rain we get in a short period of time.

to each their own.

The roads are now frozen. The Bimmer did well earlier in it. I am impressed with the TC. Oh and for the haters, it would be like Miami getting snow. Its a rare occasion here, and I am always like, not this **** again.

Don't know what you are talking about, got 5 inches this morning. Love it, makes for a great Christmas gift and definitely makes one get into the holiday spirit. We have 75 degree Christmas too and that sucks.

people who have little to no experience driving in the snow are terrible drivers when it snows, even if it's a little bit of snow. I'd rather not deal with them and stay home. Most will insist on leaving the house for unnecessary things and put themselves in harms way. Be it their own terrible driving or that of those around them.

I grew up in southern california. I never once expected to shovel snow in my life. It's not anywhere near that this year, but I don't like even a little snow. I don't mind going somewhere to see the snow, but I don't like it on my doorstep.

For reference, this is how it looked outside my house today. About 30min-1hr south of the OP.

I agree, The roads really did not get bad. Not like they did 2 years ago.

It hit us hard in Ohio for a few hours today. I like it! A little snow sucks, but a lot of snow is great!
