But MOS95B, the plows in Syracuse do suck. When there'* a a couple of inches they usually do a good job, but there have been several times where there was like 6 inches of snow on major roads and no plows in sight You'd think they'd have gotten it together since Syracuse winters suck.
They suck in Binghamton too.

Well I don't know exactly what year. It was the newest body style. I have no clue if it has that same V8 or not, could be...but he was trying. And the fact his girl was next to him was more reason for him to try and beat me. He FLEW by me the first time after I was already 5 car lengths ahead of him after I slowed. I caught up and at the next light we went for it. No horse sh** from me.

The plows up here in the north suck also, it is because of the cheap *** company the city gets to plow. They put blade gaurds on the bottom of the plow (wheels which keep the blade from actually touching the pavement) which then leaves a nice 1 inch thick layer of snow to turn into ice, or slush if it warms up.. It'* really frustrating to know our tax dollars are being wasted on a cheap compnay who doesn't even do their job.

I used to live in Colorado. Ever been going through a mountain pass, and down at a hairpin, 20mph curve with a gaurdrail and about 9,000 ft. of dead air on the other side you notice some black ice?? That'll make you wet your seat, I promise...
