LED Light Obsession - I don't get it

I wonder how many people actually use all those lights.

I'm guessing there are a few mods we could ask the same question about.

Used my lights this weekend.

I've got one pair of LED floods at the rear...awesome for backing up, use them all the time.
I have a "stand alone" pair of LED floods at the front for country roads or tracks....great for lighting up the sides of the roads where mongrel kangaroos like to wait to commit suicide.
I have one pair of head light switched LED driving lights that do a great job of throwing some light down the highway, and are dipped with the hi/lo beam switch.

So, yeah....I use all the LED lighting, and I think it's great stuff.....low current draw, love it.

With the windshield and hinge mounted lights, do you get an over-saturation of glare in inclement weather? It looks like a whiteout in the pic but maybe it's not visible from inside the cab?

In heavy snow it does make it harder to see, just like when your are driving in a snow storm you need to have your lights on dim or it looks much worse than it is... I think a amber light cover would help to reduce the glare.
