Trying to Make the Driving World a Little Less Annoying

Subaru Winter Experience

I attended a two-day program of the 2020 Subaru Winter Experience and did unnatural, unspeakable things with cars. It was both a hoot and a holler.

Land of the Midnight Sun

I’ve waxed on (but not off) before of my love of rubber. My preference is for sticky rubber, but rubber for the cold is good, too. And now I found out I like metal on my rubber.

That’s right—studded rubber for my driving pleasure.

New Snowfall Record!

As of 6 am on April 15, 2014, Detroit has broken the record for snowfall in a season with 94.8 inches total. The old record was 93.6 inches back in 1880-1881. Presumably there could have been higher snowfalls prior to that, but no one posted it on Facebook or YouTube back then, so it didn’t really happen.

So take that, 1880 and 1881! 2013 and 2014 rules! We’re #1! And all that.

Snow Close

We didn’t break the record today. As of 8:00 pm on March 12, our snowfall total for this winter is 90.7″. The record from 1880-1881 is 93.6″.


[updated April 15, 2014]

After shoveling snow all day, I don’t want to hear about all the snow in the 1970s and 1980s in Michigan. I came back to Michigan at the end of 2004, and after various snow-pocaly-geddons, four of the winters since then are in the top ten for snowiest winters in Detroit.
