I just got back from going to get something to eat. Well when I was leaving the parking lot a salt truck pulled right next to me at the red light and started to look at my car. OK no big deal its nice but then the imbred started shooting salt at my car then pulled way almost hitting a car. Man It sounded like sounded like someone was throwing stones at my car. When I got home I checked out to see any damage but didnt see any. Tomorrow I'll was my car to see if anything did happen. I AM SO TIRED OF THIS DAM WEATHER!
Thanks guys for letting me vent.

Re: I hate Winter in PA (A3-wolf)

heh I feel your pain...I just spun my car on a back road. I turned into the corner as anybody would and all the sudden I went ass over tincup (ok, I was doing about 40 which is a wee bit gast for a 90 degree) like I was on ice...but I did not hit anything. I turn around and look...there had to be an inch of very light colored cinders all over the dry road in the corner..nowhere else on the road but the corner. Oh well, live and learn

My town is too cheap to use salt.. or sand for that matter.. wait a minute, come to think of it they ran out of money, now all they do is let it snow.. and run the sand trucks once every blue moon..
sure is nice for donuts tho..

If you remember what company the dump truck was from, get them to pay for the windshield. A buddy of mine lost 3 windshields inside of 2 months to the same dumptruck on three different occasions. He had the bumper number so they paid for all three.

Man, I passed a salt truck that was spreading salt at 65mph.....Talk about making some terrible noises!!

I feel bad for my Mazda having to take such abuse in place of my VW.......

Re: I hate Winter in PA (golfSPORT95)

I remember that. I got stuck at my job for 3 days. I was working as a lifeguard at the Embassy Suits Hotel then and I had to stay there. They closed the parkway remember.
I had an 81 rabbit convert. back then . When I did get to go home I was passing up jeeps with my little vw.
