King of the road

So we are in the beginnings of an ice storm in the area. We are expecting anywhere from 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch of ice in the area.

There were tons of cars on the local road so I thought I would take the chance and get on the highway even though I heard there were lots of back ups due to accidents.

Well all the novices were off the road when I reached the highway and I was able to maintain a steady 45 mph. I passed two Wranglers on the surface roads and maybe one or two more on the highway.

The traction control light never even flickered.

I think I can attribute that to the superior four wheel drive system in the Commander and the Firestone Destination A/T's I have on there.

I have been told I still have to be at work tomorrow but I will be surprised if anyone shows up to buy a vehicle.

Chalk it up to Jeep for this fantastic ride.

Probably be a slow day - the only thing that could get to work would be a Commander, and if they had one, why would they be at the lot?

We are supposed to get between 1/4 and a 1/2 inch of ice tonight as well... and I am without my Commander.

So I get to snake my way to work in our MX5!

Just found out that we are getting another inch of ice and then 3 inches of snow on top of that.

Should be a slow day on the car lot.

At least the 3" of snow on top of the ice will make it driveable.

Well it does snow in AZ but you have to be up north, down south or to the east of Phoenix.
