    And here I am, in a country that it hardly gets cold, let alone snow. Oh how I wish I lived in the UK.

    The didn't bother gritting a few relatively prominent roads around here conveniently. Managed to scape the bejeesus out of my rear driver's side wheel by sliding into a curb :/

    Fortunately there wasn't anything coming in the other direction and I was only going around 10mph

    And I've been having fun trying to get my windscreen replaced for an acceptable ammount of moneys :(
    I've had a VERY small stone chip on the screen for years (it was even there from the previous owner who I know) and it finally decided to go this morning. What was a small problem has now turned into a 1ft wide £112 crack.
    Sadly my insurance is 3rd party (all I can afford being 22 and all) so I've been phoning round trying to get that sorted.

    £300 (from Atuoglass) was my worst quote, and a local windscreen fitter wanted £96+vat (so around £112) which is much better :)
    Still, I can think of many better ways to spend that money.

    I know where you're coming from, being from Vermont and all.

    Though TBH I hate snow for anything other than interesting photography. Something to do with horrible bloodflow so I'm always cold, and thus detest cold weather.

    Been quite mild this year though. :)
