That reminds me of the time KC had a blinding snow storm and all the companies except for Sprint shutdown at noon and was letting their employees go home. Well Sprint finally shutdown at 3 pm which by that time, all major roadways and interstates were shutdown and I had no way home.

I have a friend close to work that I keep a spare change of clothes at their house incase of these emergencies and they are only like 8 miles from my work. The only problem was, it took me 1.5 hours to get to their house.

I think anyone who has lived around snow has choosen the wrong vehicle at one time or another, lord knows I have. It never fails, you think you will be fine, and on the way home, the snow starts falling. Not fun, I have been there.

Glad you made it out and are home Chase.

I know how you feel cowboy, I had a 2WD s10 once and that thing was a death trap in the snow. I hate driving in the snow. I feel sorry for the northern people, we get some snow but not a whole lot.

Been there, done that. I had Ranger and when it snowed, we put it in four wheel drive, they are worthless in 2. Glad you made it.

At least you had the option of 4wd Jeff, I was wishing we would have had it. What I thought was weird was that the truck seemed to be happy going up the hills sideways- no matter how much I turned the wheels, it just held an almost constant angle and slowly crept up the hill at an angle. Luckily there weren't too many other fools out on the road

Yeah, I just remember not going up hills and just sitting at an intersection. I don't know that I would have gotten anywhere without 4wd. Those things are way light in the rear end with no load.
