    Angry I hate Calgary Winters!

    I've lived here for about 10 years now, but still cannot deal with these stupidly cold winters. My car hates it, I hate it. You walk outside and your nostrils instantly freeze.

    This morning my car said the outside temperature was -30oC. And it felt even colder than that with the wind chill.

    My car feels like a brick on days like today - the suspension is solid as a rock. I can't get any traction at intersections, even with Blizzaks - they take about 30 minutes to become effective, and by that time, I'm already at work.

    I have Corollas on all-seasons zipping by me while my rear-end is swinging out from lack of traction -- It doesn't matter that I feather the throttle, or start in 2nd gear, the end result is the same. DTC mode get's me moving eventually, since the default settings just cut throttle so much that it won't go anywhere.

    Yesterday on the commute home, my 'traction light' was flashing almost all the way home.. yup, it was that bad! This morning wasn't much better.

    And the other drivers .. don't even let me talk about them! I wish I had my camera mount, another driver spun out behind me this morning and hit a curb, and I passed another 2 or 3 accidents.

    Sorry -- need to vent, because everybody at work seems to ENJOY this weather.

    I'm moving to Florida!
