Overnight we got a "wintery mix" (sounds like a bag of chips) of sleet, ice, and snow. This morning we had a 2-hr late arrival policy going at work, so I had time to get the car de-iced.
This was the first real test of the Mini in inclement weather, especially since my neighborhood (including the main road) wasn't plowed. Made it out of my development, up the hill, and down the rolling main road with no incidents, even having to drive around some stuck people and downed trees.
After a life of high hp, rwd cars, it's nice to be able to actually go somewhere in the snow for once.
