Normally snowy day driving in the Zed Drei is a matter of skating a couple blocks with the car hip-faking from side to side and the traction control light spending more time on than off until I get to a main street like College Avenue. From there, everything is hunky dory because the city keeps the local arteries (in my neighborhood, that would be 62nd/Broad Ripple Ave, Kessler, College, Keystone, and 54th) pretty well salted and plowed.
Unfortunately, apparently the city didn't think that the snow was going to get this far north, and so even College Avenue was snow-covered. I gave my running errands plan up for a bad idea and turned around and came home. I really need to get the Subie fixed to keep the snow away.
