I think it'* only supposed to dip down to 5.. or maybe it was 0.. either way, nothing too bad. Plus, it isn't supposed to snow. Looks like i'll be working in the big bad bonnie today .

Yeah, yesterday was one of those days. If I had to find an upside, I now know with total certainty that the GA'* ABS breaks are in perfect working order. The funny thing about the GA (which I think is true of most newer cars) is that when the traction control or the ABS are activated, I get a little light that says "Low Trac" which makes me look at it and go "duh!, I'm on glare ice...". :P
You know when my Buicks Traction control is activated, I like to make it light up the low trac light on dry pavement......hehehehe

Wow -I'm kinda slow getting in on this thread!
Just got home about 45 minutes ago from bringing the 3 cars home from the auction.
Dang 20+ mph wind and -1*F really makes for nice weather to be monkeying around outside -took 5 hours to get the cars home.
Anyhow, it'* gonna be -30* tonight.
