Winter. When it snows a lot 95% of the idiots and inconsiderate dumbasses stay home and off the roads.

It makes my commute so much more relaxing.

I love the fall which is why I posted this. Great driving weather and yes the scenery. Something like driving on a road in foliage, and just driving over a layer of leaves in the road, and watching them blow around in the air in my rear view makes me feel like I'm in a movie. Lol

1. Fall
2. Summer
3. Winter
4. Spring

Allergies are bad down here, and the pine pollen craps all over EVERYTHING. Everyone has a greenish yellow car for about a month.

Least favorite: Summer. Stock WRX is not a fast car.
Most favorite: Winter. Stock WRX is a fast car. Oh, and ski season!

I was in Miami during the "worst part" of the summer and honestly prefer it to any day from Sept-June here in MA.... just don't understand people who complain about constant sunshine and year long summer! /endrant
I wasn't really complaining, I moved from the midwest, I'll take 9 months of gorgeous and three months of nasty over 9 months of suck and 3 months of less suck any day of the week.

With RWD and 400 whp, my car doesn't exactly like snow either.

winter--when there's snow--and then summer. winter + subie = <3 summer is great for driving with the windows down. fall and spring in indiana are too cold for windows down and the weather typically isn't any good.

Mid summer for sure. I don't know how many times I sat stuck in traffic watching the thermometer in the dash go over 110F. I hate Texas heat.

+1 it was usually the 4WD trucks in my experience... to be young and stupid... we had no business out on the roads either.. you probably remember those monster plows they have upstate. but I gotcha.

the difference is down south, all it takes is like 2" of snow. CALL THE NATIONAL GUARD!

Years ago we had a freak hail storm in Los Angeles. Dropped about 8" of hail in an hour or so. Looked like snow from the air. Literally shut L.A. down for a day. Cars running every which way. Snow plows? What's a snow plow? What's all this white stuff? Ewwww, gross!

I remember that! I thought it was so cool because it was the closest thing to snow I had seen...until I moved east.

I would say winter season. There are too many close calls with folks that drive way to fast for icy and snowy conditions.Ive had a few close calls in the last couple years mostly with suv drivers.

For those of us southerners that do ok in in the snow its great, the roads clear off of stupids and traffic and you can go shopping at wal-mart or home depot without having to wait in line.

I was actually upset that my work went to a delayed start\early release due to the snow back a couple years ago because work backed up like CRAZY and the next 2 weeks were hell.




Last winter we decided to go do a mountain run the morning before the snow was supposed to happen. We didn't get off the mountain fast enough... lol It was something else to be driving down the mountain with the top down watching the snow fall.

Most favorite- Winter, cooler air temps = more power. Especially days in the 40's with a bit of moisture in the air. Its like getting retuned again.

Least favorite- Winter with all the other idiots driving around me. Some folks just don't understand about having a car ready or able to tackle snow. Then we have to deal with them.
