100% agree on the salt trucks, that shit can break windshields!

I always let other traffic follow right behind the salt trucks, I try to hang back at least 5 vehicles so that they take the abuse of all the salt bouncing off the road (and other vehicles).

I've even been in the left lane and seen a salt truck merge onto the freeway and I'll purposely slow down and go back to the right lane and stay well back.

Re: Its not going to snow in NYC this winter..

Hah! Folks were out doing last minute holiday shopping today in shorts and tee shirts. 74F here at the highest. 70F expected tomorrow and Sunday.

Of course, we'll probably pay dearly for this in February with some "shrivel the jewels" extra cold snap weather...

I'm loving the no snow for 2 reasons. 1) My car is parked outside for the next month because of #2. 2) Waiting for the new house that we are building to finish up and hope for a little snow as possible until then.
I love that video.

Re: Its not going to snow in NYC this winter..

Looks like NJ is getting hammered.
N.J. roads could turn dangerous as winter storm approaches | NJ.com

And there's even a Jeep GC in the lead picture! (Though it's from last winter....)

Not sure about NYC at this time.

Here in the Twin Cities winter has finally arrived temperature-wise.
We are supposed to get hit starting today (28th) and into tomorrow.

If we get the projected snowfall, I'll work from home. Just not worth the risk with so many idiots out there with bad tires and distracted driving.

Though it's a shame, I enjoy driving in snow storms.

He'll need some winter tires if the snowfall continues.
My cousin just picked up a new SS and he says he does fairly well with Dunlop Wintersports.

I passed up some lady in a Mirano today driving on mostly rim. Her tire was just flapping around and she didn't look like she was going to stop anytime soon.

I remember driving my camaro in the snow for the first time. There was maybe 2 inches on the ground. I let go of the brakes and the car start sliding sideways! Ever since then, that car never comes out in snow. Thats my Fall, Spring, Summer car.

My GJC is the ultimate winter car

Re: Its not going to snow in NYC this winter..

Got some snow and sleet, so me and wifey took the JEEP(she named it Princess? its her winter ride) on maiden voyage in snow. Has Nokian snows on it.

Very impressed, poped in snow mode and headed out on some poorly treated back roads. Tracks nice and straight, no fishtailing BS, SILs have CRV's and ridden in those in snow and they suck, fishtail all over the place.

Anyhow, no fuss accelerating, brakes great,and tested 4 low. A little finicky to get in and out, used to the older NV242 t-case with lever.

Also, happy the mud flaps keep all the curb wash off lower doors and rockers expected to see slush all over them, but when we got back, was nice and clean!
