Missing 4 wheel drive

It snowed last night.  Normally not a big deal.  I don’t drive a 4×4 anymore though.  We have a steep hill near our place which is the shortest route to my son’s school.  I couldn’t get up it this morning.  Between the little bit of snow and the slick gumbo mud underneath it just wasn’t happening.  Argh!  I’m realizing how many years I’ve driven a little Subaru car that has been great in the snow.  Now that I’m not driving a Subaru I realize how much I took the 4×4 feature for granted.  Today I had to go the long way around to school and my son ended up being late.  Totally my fault as I didn’t take into account the roads and my vehicle.

Today we’ll be getting sand for the back to help with some traction and I will be saving up to buy a set of chains.  They are cheaper than a new vehicle.  So, my lesson is that if you live in snow country at all don’t buy something that doesn’t have 4-wheel or all-wheel drive.  They are worth their weight in gold.  To think I’m one of those silly folks I used to laugh at.  Hmmm… Karma by chance?
