As I look out my window right now, Seattle is getting its first snowfall of this winter. I was out driving in it just about an hour ago and I was on my way home, when I came to a red light. An older Honda Civic EX, probably a 94-95 model, pulls up next to me and starts inching his way forward. The snow was coming down pretty thick and there was a good solid 1/8 inch on the ground, so nothing too bad yet. Anyway, he starts reving and as the light turns green, he floors it...instant loss of traction! I gun it and by the time he actually starts moving, I'm hit 40 on this 30 mph limit street and ease up. He then turns off so I unfortunately didn't get to see him again. Oh well I love my AWD!
