I HATE SNOW!!!...am i alone here?

OK...so I'm on my way home from work a few minutes ago. its been snowing/freezing rain all night. Luckily i parked my car in a deck, so my car wasn't all covered, but the roads were COMPLETELY covered, and havent been plowed. I live in state college, PA. If any of you have been here, every road is somehow uphill...no matter which way you're going, you're driving up hill. I was doing OK with the traction, until my VERY last turn. I was literally stuck in the snow for 15 minutes, revving and spinning as hard as I could, and not moving an inch.

Lucky for me, a whole group of drunk kids thought this was hilarious. I knew 3 or 4 of the guys and one of the girls who came over to my car to watch this joke of a situation. They grab about 10 other people standing at the bus stop, and all of them get together to push my car up this hill.

It actually turned into an OK time, but after a long ass night of work, i couldn't have been more pissed.

people, PLEASE share your snow stories with the rest of us, so I dont feel completely alone here.

Spinning tires in snow.

I might have a story after tomorrow, looks like we're gonna get hit hard. So far nothing bad though.

I have Dunlop Wintersport M3 tires on my car.
Snow actually hates me! LOL

These tires rock. I had to go up steep snow covered hill last week. I had no problem as other cars slipped and slid.
