Maryland overdoes the salt on the roads. After the "light dusting" of snow yesterday, my car turned from grey to white. I've driven through the mountains in PA during way worse weather and my car has never gotten that much salt on it before.

Yeah its insane, my car has never looked this bad from one day of driving through the snow. To be fair i've only had this car for 3 months, but i'm including the previous car which was a 2008 version of the same vehicle.

Either way, it's going to take hours to traverse the parkway in any direction.
