of student drivers

    Hi David!
    This view brings a depends where you
    live of our area, we're all used to the
    snow -- and prepared for it!
    But on newscasts I see folks in more southern climes
    skidding all over the roads...
    P.S. Bill's comment is priceless!

    Hi, Lary. You must have smarter folks living in your region. Here, around Albany, NY, we average over 60 inches of snow a year, but the first couple times we get winter precipitation you'd think the locals had never seen the stuff before.
