As Juro mentioned, we seldom get snow or ice here in western Washington. I have seen the same thing you spoke of with folks in 4X4's and AWD's when we do get the few days of some snow or on frost covered roads around here too.

Even in eastern Washington, that does get snow and ice, the roads aren't salted. In fact, most of the western states don't salt roads in winter. Since I grew up in Pennsylvania, when I moved to Montana in 1979 and found they didn't salt roads despite getting snow and some significantly below zero temps, it took me by surprise. There weren't that many folks in Montana ending up in the ditch though, probably because if they did, they might well have been 30-40 miles from the nearest town.

It sure is nice living somewhere you don't have your vehicle's body or frame rust out from the salt.


Norah and I like the FJ as well.
