My soon to be son in law had to work...so our roadtrip has been postponed... I watch the weather pretty closely there in
Colorado...and I'm not quite sure we can drive there once it gets
more *wintery* haha... was thinking about putting a poem on
the back window when we make the ride....

Sorry, we're slow
Our first drive in the snow
We'll be okay
Have a nice day

Think that will work or will they still be mad that I do not know
how to drive in that sort of weather??? haha

That's funny Terri, I think people will get a good laugh out of that and it might distract them from yelling at you.

So sorry you won't be able to make it to Colorado.

IIRC you are somewhere close to me here in H-Town, Texas. If there is something you need from the area, please let me know.
I am on the southside near Ellington. You can always shoot me a private message.

We are leaving around the 22nd of Dec. and I usually stay around the Pueblo West area. I always end up driving all over the place. (Mainly Canon City/Pueblo/CoS).

I't is a challenge to drive in unfamiliar areas, the traffic lights alone, are like art sculptures VS. how they look here in Texas. LOL

Snow is going to be a challenge for me too this time. I have driven in snow flurries in several states (CO,NE,KS,OK), and had an absolute death grip on the steering wheel. I was also driving a Jeep Liberty at the time - and IMO, was unsafe in any weather.

Trying to read as much as I can before heading up next month - both online, and in my trucks' 4x4 manual. (although I doubt the 4x4 is going to help me much with traction - mud, yes...snow...no.

I might have to borrow "your poem". LOL

Cherry Magic-Just a heads up, you don't really want to drive down the highway with your four wheel drive on. This can cause you to spin out faster than driving in 2 wheel drive if you are driving on ice. It is the way the tires rotate that throws you out of wack. Just take your time and you should be fine. Even I get a little scared of the other people driving fast on the icy roads. It is them you have to watch out for.

snow... y'all have fun!!!!
