Got stuck today

I live in vermont I have studded snow tires and usually get around with very little trouble. I was going to my aunts house which is about 15 miles away all goes well traveling on the snow covered dirt roads until her driveway. I went there yesterday and it was completly covered in snow and ice so i backed in a little so i was off the road. Her driveway is a pretty steep pitch. So today i tried backing in and my rear wheels got lifted off the ground because there was to much snow. I tried to dig out and slowly move forward but even at 1000 rpms in first gear i would spin my tires which got me really pissed off. I eventually called my brother and he brought his truck and towed me out.

i love snow in moderation. it really is fun to drive in snow. i hate it for the fact that the damn salt eats my paint and ruins the rims. i also hate it because 85% of people don't know how to drive in snow conditions. we are supposed to get a few inches tomorrow and hopefully alot more in january.

yeah i hate the Mass people and new york people who come up to vermont and drive either very slow or reckless because they cant drive worth beans. And about the salt we have both salt and sand and i hate it when it isnt very bad out and they do that I'll drive by the snow plow and get so many damn paint chips or cracks in my windows because of the salt or sand damn them

but you can't rally in a civic without ending up in a ditch. our cars are OK in snow, but nothing extraordinary.
then again i used 2nd gear (auto) all day today to give more control and the ebrake to induce sliding around (in an empty well lit parking lot for 30 seconds)

It seems that I transferred out of UVM at a good time. I was suprised to find a lack of snow in Vermont between late November to now. Isn't this an unusually warm winter for Vermont?

Just about every time there is talk of snow up North in these forums, someone from Cali, Texas, or Florida ALWAYS has to tell the world that they are happy they live there and that it doesn't snow down there. (Within the first five posts.)

It's like... We're supposed to say "Hmmm REALLY? It doesn't snow down South? Thanks for telling me! I would never have known because I was just born yesterday."

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORINGGGG

I transferred out because of the lack of internships in the technology field. It's easier for me to get an internship in the Raleigh/Durham (RTP) area.

There's no shame in having some safe winter driving fun. Ever since the first snow fall I've been doing crazy parking lot spins, and then some hairpin U-Turns that couldn't be done in summer. I think it's important to push your limits and test your driving ability.

Well, this time I really did it. Just yesterday I finally got what I deserved and put her in the ditch sideways... e-brake turn off the highway, the turn itself was perfect but I slid sideways too much, whups! Must have looked really awesome and too bad my camera wasn't with me. I'm so lucky, no damage, I missed the metal drainage pipe by only a few feet, and had to crawl out the passenger side. My neighbor (bless him) pulled me out with his pickup in 10 seconds flat. I told my sister and later she drove by and just laughed at the Civic-shaped impression I left in the snow. That teaches me, I'll be more careful.

So yeah, go ahead and drive insane but make sure no one other cars are around and there's no immediate steep drops.
