I had the fun of driving right through the affected areas on Friday night
(never let an ice-storm get in the way of a snowboarding weekend) and was
amazed at how well my new A4 handled it.  The only way I could get it to
even break loose was by applying the handbrake.  Did have a great time
playing rally driver on the snow/ice covered roads of northern Vermont.  
I do have one question though, while trying to follow the rather poor
directions to Jay Peak given to me by a friendly Vermont State Trooper, I
had to make a couple U-turns.  On one of them, when I hit an especially
slick patch, there was a soft "clunk" coming from what I assume was the
rear differential as the power was re-distributed.  Please tell me this is
normal.  I would hate to have problems with my new baby.
