I don't know about "idiot", but maybe either overly confident or overly fearful. there's a certain"feel" to driving on snow, kind of like the "feel" to riding. some folks got it, some don't.

helps to have front wheel drive, or AWD (like me).

a lot of people from back East don't understand why snow here (Seattle, Portland area) is a big deal. They don't realize that our snow is like "grease" , it is so wet and slick. And our land is almost all hills, with lakes and bridges and other hazards. And , hardly any snow plows, and rare salting of roads. And, as you said, drivers without experience and in cars ill prepared for ice/snow. makes for some fun times.

Eh, I vote for "idiots". :)

We use to have an old full sized Blazer that we primarily used for farm stuff. It snowed a lot there. It literally could not get stuck. On the occasion I had to go into town when it snowed I would inevitably get behind someone w a new, large 4x4 that would be so terrified to take a turn at 5 mph b/c of the snow they would come to a complete stop in the road. I really liked that Blazer - if I had to drive in the snow w that kind of idiot, I wanted to be in a tank.;)

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

I 2nd "Idiots." NOTHING is as scary to me as a crummy, ice-packed road with a snowstorm and having to negotiate it with the people who panic on the road.
I hold me BREATH sometimes, until I hit the CR's where it's just me on the road.

Hope that you fall in love with "Trot", like I did! http://www.horseforum.com/general-of...queens-617793/

You can keep it!!!
We got snow in October in 2011 and it wrecked a lot of me trees as they still had leaves on them, two had to be felled altogether and it brought down so many branches all over the State the power was out for a couple of weeks.
The first year we came here and it snowed for Christmas I as all "Oh how lovely and romantic and perfect' By March I was completely sick and fed up of the stuff and understood the meaning of cabin fever.
No - snow in October just doesn't look right!!!

SNOW - that's the only four letter word I find offensive.

I hope this winter pounds and pounds and pounds and pounds snow down!

I want to buy a house, I need those prices to come down!!!!
