Living in Wisconsin, I've had my fill of snow. It's snowing right now, possible 8"- 16" by Tues. But I never gotten stuck. I'm ready for spring, and the flooding. Bring it on!

Guess I will get to run mine in the snow to boys. We are supposed to get 1/2-1" of ice another 3-4" of sleet and like 8-12" of snow starting this morning. Its funny because it hasn't even started yet and tons of schools are already closed for the day. lol oh the good ol days know when it does this it means I don't get paid for a couple days and that aint good for a guy like me. Gotta wait to pay my sales tax on my new jeep patriot to make sure I will be able to pay my house payment. Oh the joys of winter.

Winter SUCKS! I'm ready for summertime. I hate the cold! My jeep's heater only blows warm heat. I need hot. Maybe I need to move south for the winters. Get a fake I.D. that says I'm 55+ and live in a retirement community!!!

You guys are lucky I've only seen snow once. Although there's suppose to be a artic front coming in a couple days, but I doubt it will be enough to have any fun, it will probally just make things miserable.

When the snow gets heavy in my small town they push it into the middle of the street before taking it away with an earth mover. I use to have a lot of fun "walking" over those piles with my previous XJ.

Really looking forward to that again with my "new" one. And with the way the forecast looks, I don't think I will have to wait long.

yeah, sucks to be the dog.
At least it was quick, I think its head hit the bumper first. We were doing 45 when it happened, heard a THUMP and then the jeep felt like it went over a speed bump. Shelley almost went in the ditch after the hit.
Owner came and picked it up (she lived 1/4 mile from the hit) and I of course told her "sorry, but there was nothing we could do. We would of went in the ditch and STILL hit the dog" and she said "its ok, accidents happen" and drove away.
Shelley made me drive for a while after that.

Default This feeling is very healthy.

I just bought my Cherokee in October before the winter, and even on my old bald kelly SUV tires I LOVED 4x4 snow driving. Could get through about anything. With my new 235/75/15R snow tires I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy that even more with the coming snow here in MIchigan
