%systemdrive% in Powershell

I was just trying to write a script to manage IIS logs. I was able to get the log directory, but it comes back as  %SystemDrive%\inetpub\logs\LogFiles

Reading between the lines from a couple of posts, I found that I can use $env:SystemDrive in place of %SystemDrive%

So I can do something like this:
Import-Module WebAdministration
$website = Get-Website | Where-Object {$_.name -eq 'SharePoint - 443'}
$logfileDirectory = $website.logFile.directory -replace '%SystemDrive%', $env:SystemDrive
