New Car's First Snow

One thing you can almost set your weather forecast by: When I buy a new car (to me or otherwise) within a week there will be snow.  I've only ever owned one car where this wasn't the case, ironically it was a Subaru. 

One of the first things I did with the car was take it to the local elementary school and try to lose control in the parking lot.  Where in the Honda, just a tap of the gas pedal or brake was enough to nearly completely break the car loose, this vehicle held tight.  The electronic safety systems held tight, and made my goal of losing control very difficult to attain. 

After about three spins around and no skids, I yanked up hard on the e-brake which did, fortunately, result in a beautiful back-end slide.
