Well here in Madison, Wisconsin we just got like 6-12 inches of snow between yesterday and today, its been snowing like crazy today. I had to battle my wife for the garage.. She just got a 08 Mercury Milan, its hard to explain to her why i want to put my "02" Wrx in the garage because hers in newer.. so i got to get my car in there this morning but here are some pics of it before i wiped it off and threw it in the garage.

Before Snow


After Snow


And its still snowing like crazy!

I did just get a car wash yesterday but... it is fun to drive in..

Looks fluffy. We got a little in NH last night too. :) And I agree, the Milan is not worthy of the garage.

Hey i'm in Madison too, nice car. We're in for quite a bit more snow tomorrow...should be fun.

Your sig pic looks like the neighborhood down by uw arboretum/seminole highway.
Yeah! Im so stoked for all the snow! Were supposed to get 8-12 more inches tonight.... It hasn't started yet but it should soon.. That picture was taken at a buddies house down in illinois, but i live on the southern side of madison off the beltline so..

i don't have a camera but we got about 8 to 10 inches here as well didn't even have to try that hard to get out of my driveway this mornin. Those Winterforce's were great didn't slide or slip unless i gave it a little to much gas and as for stopping the ABS didn't go off once today.

I am off to my work Chistmas Party so im gonna get plasterd, but im not driving and the person who is, isnt gonna drink so im good to go but tomarrow im gonna have to change my mom's head gasket with a possible hang over so idk if it will be a good day and we here in wisconsin are gonna get another 3 to 6 inches of snow tomarrow night so YAY!!!

I agree, gettin in and out those snow banks the plows create is easy, but the braking and inclines are kinda hard with the stock all seasons, I think next winter I will change to snow tires and see how this car performs.


i hate the snow....i bought my all season tires thinkin theyd be good but they suck.....i can move in the snow, easily.....its going down those hills and braking, my car slips lot
