Our cars are super bitch'n in the snow. We just got hit with a decent snow storm today and it probably dropped a good 6-7" of snow in about 2-3 hours. I left work at 5pm and it was a total white-out here in the North-East Ohio area. My usual 15 minute commute took 35. On the way home I truly learned what a luxury it is to have a good set of snow tires and awd. There reached a point where ppl were just pulling off to the side of the road and turning on the hazards because they couldn't go any further. I saw people spinning out of control trying to go up small inclines, and around corners. But not me, I plowed right through it all and did it with style, wow what a feeling...

Today was just one of those days where I was feeling the Suby-love. Just wanted to share that.

Happy snowplowing :sunny:

I hear you. Sucks when it snows here... Amy takes my RS and I'm stuck in our Jimmy, with open differentials and off-road only 4WD (meaning stop to shift into 4x4, and can't drive on pavement for fear of torquing the driveshafts and breaking them.)

I want another Scooby! :D

damn.. I must be the ultimate bad-ass..

I drive like a friggen animal in the snow; nothing feels better than counter steering your way out of a slide.

Haven't had much white stuff in Connecticut.. Got a bit of a dusting today :)

If only I lived in Buffalo! :eek:

I've offered my car to my wife, but she hasn't taken it very often. Not that I'm complaining. ;)

I'm usually fairly aggressive in the snow too, just not in 5pm rush hour traffic with a whole road full of peeps. I always hit the local schoolyard lot for a little playtime in the snow.

MistaRS, I think the storm we had today is headed your way next. Have fun!

We got slammed too. I had to pull some girl off of a sewer main. It was hilarious she busted her neons off and she was just about in tears. I can't even understand how she got in that position. As soon as I turned the corner and saw her stuck Garbage - Stupid Girl came on the radio. After I pulled her into a church parking lot I did a bunch of dounuts to make sure my gas was mixing well in my tank......yea, that sounds good. I will admit snow tires would make things much nicer.

This was after work on the way home. That did happen last winter though, where I was only one of a few ppl who made it to my evening class at a nearby college. and I had an hour+ commute.
