What a difference a few hundred feet of elevation makes.... Lot's of micro climates around here - big river, hills & valleys adds up to lots of variations...
That said, better than half of the people on the road shouldn't be. Getting a license is too dang easy in this country...

I didn't even try to go anywhere. My hill is one giant sheet of ice that is not melting, plus add to the fact new neighbors parked in such a way it will be interesting to get out of my driveway in the morning and not hit either of their cars.

Did go out and spend several hours chipping away at the ice sheet to give myself some sort of chance. Truck does great in the snow, but on ice trying to avoid hitting neighbors cars is a different story.. Just have to get off my hill and everything else is fine...

Know what you mean by people who have no idea how to dive in such weather should stay off the road. While I was outside today, a Comcast installer tried to get up the hill in a 2wd pickup. He thought it was dry towards the top. After he became stuck and tried to back down, he nearly took out my neighbors SUV parked on the street.

2001, two months after Sept 11th I moved to Florida. Went down to get Florida driver's license. Filling out the paperwork when two ladies walked up. When asked the first lady said my friend wants to get a Florida driver's license but doesn't speak english. The agent asked could she translate for her, yes, ok he's the paperwork????????

is there a question? you don't have to speak English to get a drivers license

Maybe read some of the signs like Stop, Merge, Yield, Slower Traffic Keep Right, Construction Ahead, Reduce Speed Ahead, etc.

Some of the worst drivers in the country live in Florida. Florida Highway Patrol wanted to start ticketing slow drivers in the left lane, Governor Jeb Bush vetoed it because he said they'd be ticketing the snowbirds and many wouldn't come back, WHAT!

Let's hope the weather and traffic are a bit better this month eh? At least the weather forecast looks good. Barring anymore landslides that close an Interstate, traffic will hopefully not be super bad.

Who else is in?

If saying "yes" means I'm more likely to win the lottery, then...yes...yes I will.
