Randy,

Thanks for posting... I just canceled my flight to SeaTac in the morning for a business meeting in Auburn tomorrow. Keep the shiny (or should I say snowy) side up.

According to KING 5 news we are getting 4" to 16" of snow in Western WA.

Wish we would have snow here.....this is the worst winter ever in Minnesota, we have not even been below ZERO yet and not even a half of an inch of snow is on the ground. It sucks having a 2012 Ski-Doo XRS 800R still with zero miles on it.

If Seattle put salt down would you still drive your daily driver in snow and salt?

I'll drive my "daily driver", it's a 2011 F250 4x4. :rockon:

The Shelby would be worthless in the snow.

I actually NEVER drive it in the snow, I put it in heated storage.

Just got caught as I was gone for day and did'nt really think it was going to snow...LOL so I thought I'd pull a joke here.

Did drive it very short distance to get it inside and man SCARY does not even begin to describe that short trip...crunchy snow under the tires!

One time I drove it over a pass coming back from the SA superchrged trip, and I then rinsed and washed the underside for about 8 hours after that.

Car needs a super detail now.
