What's With Snow and Me?
Today, I woke up to about 6-10 inches of fresh powdery snow all over the place. It's actually beginning to feel like Christmas time, now!
Now, most normal people would say within themselves, "Man, I hate snow on the roads.", but not me.
I'm not entirely sure why I'm this way, but it's been this way ever since I can remember.
I love driving in snow.
The first thing I thought when I saw the freshly fallen snow is, "I've gotta get out there and drive in that before the snow-plows get rid of it." This probably wouldn't be too terribly odd, if I had a hummer, or a 4-wheel drive of some sort, but no. I've got a mustang GT, which happens to be rear-wheel drive, and pretty much made to not go in snow.
I doubt I'll ever figure out the why, but once I got it out my system, I felt so much better. I went out and drove like a maniac in the snow for about 30 minutes. Fish-tailing at 30-40 MPH, and going generally crazy in any vacant parking lot I could find.
So... Not sure why I posted this, but I just think it's so odd that I absolutely love driving in snow. Not sure if that'll ever change, either.
You would think I would have grown out of it by now. *grin*
