When you live in Maryland, USA in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. you get four true seasons each year. Note to Mother Nature: You can have winter back. This year’s treacherous winter was epitomized by “Snowmageddon” a Nor’easter fired storm that dropped 36 inches of snow in my immediate area, and paralyzed the Eastern Seaboard from the Carolinas to New England.
Obviously overwhelmed, it took local authorities three days to begin digging out the roads in my small community. Luckily, after my trusty snowblower cleared the driveway, my test 2016 BMW 640i Gran Coupe was at the ready. I know, I know, BMW’s are not normally known for snow and ice prowess, but this Bimmer was outfitted with xDrive, BMW’s high-tech All-Wheel Drive system.
