[s-cars] It goes without saying, but...

Yesterday my wife and I left our house in Boston at 9 am, got into
Manhattan just after noon.
We spent the next five hours in a couple of doctors' offices at
Columbia Presbyterian, her getting poked and prodded and scraped
and cut and shocked, me trying to remain nonchalant and get
through at least one Wired magazine. Don't ask.
We got back into the car at 5 PM, driving into a light snowstorm
that had been going all day. Nothing serious, just enough powder,
slush and ice on the road to slow traffic down and make it
interesting. The drive home took four hours (plus another hour for
a leisurely dinner at a diner), slow going in NY and central
Connecticut until it got late and snowy enough for the roads to
clear of traffic. Hammer lane covered in powder, the others mostly
went and/or slushy. Truckers were all yakking about where the snow
was worst. Snow? No big deal.
We rolled back into my garage at 10 PM, just in time for me to
fire up the snow blower and tidy up the driveway. A man's work is
500 miles door to door to door. I've driven further, much further,
in a single sitting (700 and 1500 miles, twice), but never in as
much comfort and fun (and weather!). My poor wife, bruised and
sore, serenly comfortable in the Audi sport seats. A flawless trip
in an awesome machine.
I love my Audi!
