Was it -16F there this morning? Yes, you have a shitty, grey, long winter, but just because we get lots of sun here doesn't mean that we don't see the extremes.

Yes, all cars get in accidents. If you want to put your 'vert on a pedestal that's fine with me. It's also fine for you to express your opinions here, but don't talk to me like I'm a small child and presume that only people from Canada know about winter.

I now live in Western Canada, but I did spend a year or so in Denver, CO which included one full winter. Believe me, drivers in the Denver and anywhere along the Front Range of the Rockies have to content with winter conditions every bit as bad as most of Canada. Cold, snow, wind, and black ice are all in a Colorado winter. Climate is lot like Calgary IMO.
