Grill?? Try hood scoop. The big F250 in front of my house is stuck!
I got more than 7 feets of snow in front of my house after the plow passes.

I've done snow in the north and snow in the south, and let me tell you... When it snows in the south it is one royal cluster****. It is bad enough when it rains!

I have re-re-reposted this in different threads, but you wanna talk about EPIC STUCK... the last (only) time I got stuck in the wrx.

No driving out of this one. I got stuck in a drift in the middle of the 'road'. This is how it looked when I got back.

Yes, I had brand new studless snow tires on. Really doesn't matter in these kind of conditions.

^^^ It sucked to walk OUT of. Getting back was a piece o' cake, thanks to a D6 Cat. Only damage was a decent scratch on the back bumper from me getting a bit too close with a shovel diggin her out. Dark out, snow, white car... :doh:

^^^ Sitting around... no. Rented for about a G, yes. It was that or leave it til April. Not an actual D6 but the same thing. I still had a damn good time, despite the expense and the cold.

When the guy dropped it off he said 'If you get this stuck, don't call us.'

I'm right there with you, although I'm farther north. Hearing about all this snow makes me jealous.

^^^ Can't tell if sarcastic. But all and all I had a good time. 6 trucks stuck coming to my rescue, including a 800cu" Cummins turbo 6x6, deuce and 1/2, a Banks F-350 on 38's and an assortment of 'smaller' trucks. The worst of it was walking out that night, hip deep snow and digging out the f-350 which kept popping the intercooler hose. I grew up in Alaska, but this was the worst frost bite I've had. 15f and 50+mph winds, snow still coming down hard and fast, it was not the best night to be out playin'. Still entertaining. It's just one of those life lessons, 30+ and I still needed to be put in my place when it comes to mother nature.

Haha I'm from Nova Scotia - living in a town called Sackville.

It won't be the apocalypse but it should be a ton of fun once enough gets down that most of the clowns are forced off the roads....but before then the highways will be like a ****in smash up derby.

With over a decade under my belt working/living in the cascade foothills, my professional advice centers around paying close attention to the snows water content and air temperature. The more water that is held in the snow, the more it starts to resemble concrete, and increases your chances of getting stuck. Also "Packed snow" has been driven on and "packed" down, or has had more than one storm, creating surface compression and layer compaction... Just an fyi...

So... if it is 99% humidity and 30 degrees, you should bring a pulaski and a shovel.

On the flip side, it could be Utah fluff... the entire storm could be down near the mid 80%s in humidity and 5 degrees, which you can submarine through.

There are so many different possibilities when it comes to driving in fresh snow, but the higher those two environmental factors are, the harder it will be.

Now you know, and knowing the H% and degrees is half the battle...

Every vehicle on earth will get stuck if you high-center the thing. By high-center I mean getting the chassis stuck up on something. With no load on the tires, you have no traction.
