I have had my car since December and today it snowed between 1 and 2 inches. My car is kinda bad, plus it's my first time driving in the snow by myself. Only bad thing was an 18 wheeler almost reversed into me. I kept honking the horn to let him know I was there but he kept reversing. I ended up hitting the brakes and sliding sideways a little. Then all he did was put his hand up and drive off. I was driving at about 15 mph tops.

You guys suck! I live in western Virginia and we normally have tons of snow, but we have only had a dusting which happened last Sunday. A storm today made a hole and hit everywhere but where I am. Its balls! My friend and i want to go out and do a little sliding around.

First real snow.. couple of inches in NJ too. Found it was a real bitch to drive her. I was doing about 65mph when the snow began to go from dusting to sticking. Changed lanes and all of a sudden, the back end started to wiggle, not fishtail, but wiggle. I'm thinking it was probrolly from the groves in the road over the years of traffic, but still, kinda scared me. Felt like the car was floating around. Welcome back snow.. now F off.
