Had some fun in the KA today...... but it's raining now, so probably won't be much snow left by tomorrow morning....90% of train services got cancelled and the bus service was behind by a couple of hours... back to normal tomorrow I suppose.
Tristan, there is a difference between being 'stupid' and 'not having enough training', you are one of a minority of people in the UK lucky enough to have several years worth of racing experience behind you, and so your limits of ability are higher than the average Dagehman Dave Mondeo Man, this doesn't mean that Dave is a retard though, he has just never had the expierience .
If you left someone in a dark room from birth they would probrably not know much, thats why people go to school, people aren't natrually born great drivers, they have to learn, but in the UK they don't get taught properly. There's too much going on about looking out for old grannies and 'eco-safe driving' (yes they mark you on that on your driving test now!) and not enough about actual car control.
You guys sure don't have any snow as i was just plowing outside and we had about half a foot of snow and its still snowing heavy. and we have snowbanks about a meter and a half high and about 3-4 meters long. If i ever get i pic of it i'll show you.
Was I the only person who actually had to go to school today?
This morning we only had a light sprinkling of snow, there was no snow at all at lunchtime, but then it completely tipped it down with snow this afternoon - there's at least 2" sitting outside atm and its still coming down.
Fingers crossed but I think i'll be at school again tomorrow
back in 96 we got 4 1/2 feet! good times. but i guess snow isn't normal over there. a few inches never got us out of school, the buses were always sliding around lol. but i drive in snow and ice all the time in my 240sx (with very worn tires) and it's not too bad, that video made it seem like it was gonna get everyone killed. is it that rare over there?
Like explained at least couple of times in this thread, there's big difference with places that have proper three+ month winter and a place that gets sleet once in a decade. That's why your and my first reaction is to laugh at this.
