    That's weird. I didn't know snow and ice could make a Tesla look that different:eek:

    In STL as well, will say the MS is the best car I have ever driven in the snow. I watched trucks and suv's spin out and I was able to just roll by them up the hills.

    Maybe it predicted no Tesla dares to park overnight outside in such weather!

    I agree, I had zero trouble yesterday in places where many others were stuck or spinning out...took it nice and slow and the dual motor traction control was there for me!

    It was funny though, when I pulled into the garage (after the 4 hour 18 mile journey) there was enough snow I could see the battery cover tracks in between the tire tracks on the driveway.

    Yep! I was so tired I didn't think to take a picture, just chuckled and got to shoveling.
