14F here tonight. At least when we drove into the garage. Getting colder, I'm sure. Dry though, so roads are clear. Smart car is still the tag. Kind of challenging in the states, but not impossible, just takes a little luck or effort to locate a dealer or a used one for sale. I mean hey, the classifieds are out there for every local. I hear you on the salt. And the potential for unpleasant things with snow/ice. BTDT and too many times in the past. With age comes wisdom, but ever so slowly, eh? The Swiss are good with challenges, maybe a neighbor has a hack?
