Yep, global warming really has been taking its toll I would think. Not too long (maybe seven years?) ago, we surely hit much much lower temperatures than we do these last years. Not nearly as much snow here either. There was a time when we had a couple feet of snow, now we're lucky if we have snow for Christmas! And I am only 18 years old. Which demonstrates even further that these weather changes are quite recent :)

[stevieb]: man, I absolutely LOVE driving in the worst winter conditions. In the mountainous roads, there are extremely few (if any) other drivers. I love the challenge. I've been doing extreme off-road my whole life, and as I said, I'm always well...
[stevieb]: ...prepared for even the very worst
