    Oh that makes perfect sense, with a single charger...Onondaga Lake is much more scenic than Carrier Circle!

    Sam, I spend a lot more time here than the TM forum but this is one of the best threads over there...exploits of a 'vigilante' that places cones in SC parking spots to limit ICIng

    This. The reality is that the Model S traction control is so good, that I would drive anywhere with it (with snow tires) that I would drive a 4 wheel drive vehicle. The problem is that 95% of the population doesn't believe this and they believe that 4WD is a must for snow and ice. So IMHO, 4WD is a marketing necessity, but not a real need. Which is probably also why Tesla hasn't been prioritizing a 4WD model S, since they tend not to prioritize purely marketing features. They prefer instead to tackle real problems.

    I mean, with all these forums and people running to the forums everyone their car burps, how many times have you read that their Model S got stuck in the snow?

    Great thread & the cones are working, here is a tid bit from "Code Orange" writing talents...
    Code Orange
    They were clamoring for more installments, for more escapades. The Code Orange phenomenon was sweeping the country. He could no longer delay the inevitable. He had to tell his wife.
    He dreaded the moment. He knew that she viewed him as an odd, lonely sort, with interior monologues rattling around his head. His Code Orange identity could only confirm her worst fears.
    He told her everything. The purchase of the cones ("You hid them in the frunk?"); the online order for stickers ("Seriously? You bought stickers?"); the fending off of the ICEr at the Greenwich SC station ("He could have run you over. You have a wife!! A child!!"); the placement of cones at JFK ("You drove to JFK? The airport??").
    He limped away, humiliated. That night, he dreamed that he was shackled to a chair, and before him appeared his wife, mcclary and Elon Musk, all attired in Connecticut State Trooper uniforms. "What was the point?" they asked, and then they threw tiny flags at him, each one embossed with an orange cone decal. "You're flagged!" they yelled, then they joined hands and ran off into the gathering mist.
    He woke up, rivers of flop sweat pouring down his face. He found his wife sitting at the foot of the bed.
    "Edison, NJ," she said. "That location is always ICEd. We need to act. And soon."
    He realized then what he had always realized. That he loved his wife. And that she could probably benefit from therapy
