You'd think a place that gets 60 inches of snow a year would have
people that can drive in snow. But they can't, the first real snow
of the year and there's a wreck every couple miles.

Trying to drive a B or BGT in winter up here would be suicide. You
know someone in an Escalade or Expedition or Hummer would knock me off
the road and not even notice.
