    They're showing snow showers in the forecast for the 19th :(

    Hopefully that changes as we get closer.

    When it snowed I used to do hand brake turns in my previous cars, but in the 308 all you need to do is step on the gas and you're sideways. Unfortunately that works so well, the 308 basically can't drive straight on snow, at least not with the summer tires I have on it. So, no thank you, that one time driving home was bad enough. Especially when you have 4x4 trucks tail gaiting you. No fun.

    To be honest, as I drove it home last week my heart skipped a beat at the sight of some snow flurries coming down. Luckily it didn't stick and I got home in time.

    Oh,Yeah,I know what you mean. It was even worse with the different C4 Corvettes that I've owned....Super Wide Tires = Less Traction in the Snow=No Go!!!!
