Don't Do this in Your Alfa! Driving in Snow
Driving in snow is an acquired skill or one you learn by virtue of being raised in a snow state/country. If you're going to attempt to acquire the skill, practice in a car other than your Alfa until you can drive in the snow with some skill and confidence.
There is a reason that those of us who were raised in snow or have the acquired skill live where it is not required to be used. While snow days are nice, they are far and few between, but not the winters of dealing with it day-after-day. And then you have what salt states do to the vehicles.
I have trouble walking and avoiding the black ice, let alone trying to look for it or avoid it on overpasses etc. while driving. As I've stated previously, in California when it snows the Highway Patrol escorts traffic, that's because we have such accomplished drivers in regard to snow. It infuriates those, like Pat, that know how to drive in the snow. I'll spare you all my black ice story.
