Anyone noticed the snow outside?

I drove out this morning and came back after driving < 1km. Got stuck up hill in front of a TTC bus for a couple of minutes, all those people looking at me

cleaned out 2 driveways early this morning took the dog for her walks (she loves the snow) ... our area is fairly quiet ... all I hear is the fire truck sirens ... rushing to the accidents and fender benders ... best to stay inside until it passes.

Most people seam to work from home based on the many cars in drive ways. Or they are taking a day off

Driving in the snow is one thing, but parking your car outside all winter is just stupid lol.

Sorry but here snow lasts for 2 days at most. 2 days later I'm driving around while you visit your m3 in a garage and hope for a chance to start her. Lol

It's always the ones without the M that say that. I don't care what car it is, if it's paid for with my own $$ then I'll treat it right. Golf, M3 or 458, doesn't matter.

My M3 has an allergy to snow, so it stays indoors (garaged). On the other hand the Subi and ML loves the snow!

Ever car dealership I've been to leaves their cars outside.... besides garages are hard to come by in Toronto proper, and even if you have one, you're probably not leaving your car in it... some people in my neighbourhood leave their RR outside 365 days a year, so seeing M cars street parked is not uncommon

I have first hand experience of getting one of my old cars totalled in the middle of the night after parking it on the street. Learned it the hard way..
