There are people who cannot imagine that there are other ways of life than their own life. :facepalm:

It’s just solid common sense. Drivers need to be reminded to use some once in a while to avoid dangerous situations like snow.

But front wheel drive and rear wheel drive cars handle snow differently.

As an Australian, the only "snow" I've driven on involved a bag and a straw while I was at the wheel.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

One of the reasons I live in place that ‘snows’ maybe once or twice a year. Snowflakes in the morning, all melted away by the afternoon. No shoveling out the car to go to work, no driving on snow, no sliding on black ice, no getting rock salt or sand inside the house.

I’d rather fly somewhere to experience the fun of snow without the drudgery of living with it.

Lol. I vote this as the most useful topic posted on a Cambodian forum. Have you even tried explaining snow to Cambodians ? I can't even explain what it's like to be really "cold". :shrug: It does not compute.
