More snow on the way. While I’m happy that this gives me another shot at making my snowman army, I’m not too thrilled at the scheduling conflicts it’s creating.
I know I’ve hinted at it before so now I’ll just say it outright. I love my car, but the traction control on the Prius (2005) is dangerously bad. It engages sometimes if I drive through a puddle. No joke. Imagine then what it’s like on roads that are actually bad. If this were a case of not being good at driving in adverse conditions I would happily admit it, but I’ve got that pretty well under control. The prospect of a foot or two of snow by Wednesday makes me a little uneasy for that reason. Hybrid SUVs need to hurry up and get produced, specifically the FJ Cruiser. I know it can be done, I saw one in LA. Obviously it was an independent conversion and I understand that but I don’t get why something so obviously great isn’t being produced yet.
The Prius is first on the short list of smart purchases I’ve made in my life and I don’t regret it at all. It’s a great vehicle even despite the fact that I get absolutely zero respect on the road. That said, the day I can buy a hybrid FJ Cruiser without having to somehow convert it myself…nothing will stop me from buying it.
I hope you’re listening Toyota.
See you tomorrow,
