Snow Driving

This is what it looked like driving from Denver to Vail yesterday:

This is what it sounded like in my car:

You in the Subaru!  With the functional snow tires!  Kiss my DC-born, Virginia-raised, 20-mph-driving, 2d-gear-using, single-lane-occupying, 88-Honda-encased ass!   And an even less desirable activity for you, the guy in the Hummer who came behind me and flashed his high beams.

By the time I got to Vail Pass, I was a one-woman traffic jam, my faithful Honda trailing a long line of impatient Subarus, the interior of the car a constant stream of inspiring epithets.

All worth it for a gorgeous day of skiing followed by an awesome dinner with good friends!
