Default Midwest Snowstorm (2-21-13)



Looks like we've got some AWD fun headed our way between Wednesday February 20th and Friday February 22nd! I'll be taking a few spins in this stuff, as it's supposed to be a dry, lightweight snow. Anyone planning to play in this latest batch of fun?



I'm planning on posting pictures/video of a few of us here in Nebraska that plan to make an evening out of it.

Eh
From the reports I have seen, STL shouldn't be getting so much snow as we will ice. Not as fun as snow.

I'll be trying to have some fun. But, it looks like this part of IL is only going to get an inch or two.

You slide off the road? $10.00 and I can get ya out.
If you make it out before the snow plows do in STL (which is a HUGE window of time) you could make quite a bit o money

After one of the 2011 storms I sat in a parking lot watching a Jeep Cherokee get stuck trying to pull an F-150 FX4 out of 3 or 4 inches of snow.

My wife wouldn't let me pull them out.

StL is getting hit pretty good right now, had a fun drive at the onset but the roads are about deserted at this point.

Right as it started...

Some fun in Omaha, NE. We had about 3-4 inches for the top picture. Closer to 7 inches in the bottom one. Top picture is my buddy Aaron in his FXT. Bottom picture is my '12 Impreza 2.0i.

Just hooned around in Peoria with someone in an STI hatch on Knoxville. It was a good time, I have no idea where you went tho. You either turned or spun out...one second you were there, and then you were gone.
