Shucks, it's been a very warm winter thus far and my pocket is all the better for it.
Remember, it is only January 9, and we have February and March and the rest of January to get through. It is rare to have 2 winters in a row like last year. Past weather records would prove this out. I would not put away the snow shovels just yet, it is just very early winter, and 1966 started out with roses blooming in Annapolis but the month ended with 3 major snowstorms, record cold, and over 30 inches of snow for that month.
Snowmageddon was in early February in 09!
****, I brought a Jeep Wrangler two years ago because I didn't have a vehicle for the snow. Looks like I won't need it this year either:(
Why would you buy an unreliable gas guzzler to begin with? 17 city and 21 highway for a small-ish SUV that you have to jack the stereo up loudly due to the road noise? That tells me you don't even take it off-roading. It's like buying a truck and just driving it around, having NO use for a pickup truck! You're the reason why they still make these pieces of crap. Stop buying them!
