Yeah you only “need” AWD in Canada. Nobody else in North America has any “real” use for it.

I think some northern states have a use for it as well as Colorado. Unlike the rest of North America there's not an area of Canada that doesn't get snow.

We got snow this year. And our usual flooding rains. The last flooding rain really f’d my property up. It’s crazy to engineer for 102 degree summers, 0 degree in the winter, flood rain, drought, f me!

Absolutely, here in CO in the Spring, you can go from freezing temps with heavy snow to Sunny and 65F in a 1.5 hour drive.
