I just got to Syracuse myself. I'm a freshman attending Syracuse University, and bought my WRX the week before coming up here. All I can say is WOW, it's cold up here. I'm from Boston, and we have some harsh winters, but nothing like you guys get up here. I'm very glad to have the subie, and not be driving the camaro i traded in for it. On a side note, I just ordered some rally armor mud flaps after seeing how salted the roads are here. Given that I'm at school though, I have no tools to install them. Would anyone in the area be willing to help me out, I'd throw some money in for it?
