I know the feeling: I used to have a tuned B6 S4 with nokian hakkas; that thing was a snow monster. Once they shut down minneapolis for a horrible storm and my wife was stuck downtown (she admitted it was dumb to stay) - i drove through unplowed roads for a 40 mile round trip in 1-2 feet of snow. Snow plows would drive across the roads I was on and I would punch it and blast through both berms rrrrRRRRROOOOORRRRR BOOM-BOOM!. Did that for 2-1/2 hours and burned 1/2 tank of gas and a full tank of windshield wiper fluid ... with the V8 roaring the whole time. It was un-fucking-real.

And, on the return trip, it was the one time my wife never said a word about my insane driving. She just read a book and let out an occasional scream.

fuck you snow.
Fuck you snow brother.
