    Normally I would join in with the "I hate winter" sentiment but I need to find a stronger word than 'hate'. 'Hate' does not adequately convey the distaste I have for that part of the year here in NE Ohio.

    Haha, I completely agree.. I’ll be moving next year to the sunshine state so looking forward to this being my last winter for a looooong time

    That Falcon is bad! Love it.

    And for those that hate winter, get something that you can play in the snow with. Here is my Jeep ready for winter with a Collinite 845 prep.

    I had a '16 WRX for 18 months, great fun in the snow, would go thru anything...AWD drifts in snowy parking lots great fun and pretty entertaining in Summer too. After 18 months though, being a 55 year old WRX owner lost some of its allure. The Post a Picture of Your Ride as it Sits Thread

    It's really not even the snow, only had about 20 days of inconvenience-level snow last year, more than average. Once they start laying down salt, brine and other chemical de-icers though, you're not gonna be able to enjoy so much as a single pleasurable glance at your car for 4+ months...it always takes on the look and feel of a dirty chalkboard.

    Tried the first year w spray washes, waterless/rinseless but a short drive down even a dry street kicks up enough salt dust that your immediately back to ugly. May as well just forget about the word 'gloss' until Spring.

    And it gets kinda cold too...so many mornings last year at sub-zero temps.

    Nobody's fault but my own though...I choose to live here (or more accurately, am too lazy to move) and there is a plus side. By the time the pain of winter finally recedes, you're so happy that nearly nothing can bring you down, kinda like when the dentist says "You're all done" or the final curtain falls at the ballet you just suffered through; the greater the pain, the greater the joy when it finally disappears!

    So it's not all bad The Post a Picture of Your Ride as it Sits Thread

    ^ Winter cold hurts at 55, not like when we were young when it was just an inconvenience. ^

    Subaru’s are definitely fun in snow. Why did you get rid of it? The only WRX I’ve driven was an early release 2004 STi back in 2003. Not exactly refined but it was a riot to drive. I’ve kicked around the idea of a new one a few times.

    The tough part of winter for me is when it gets under 20°f and the lack of sunshine. I’m in SE Michigan and it seems like we go weeks on end of nothing but gray skies. Probably the same for you. Btw, February of 2015 I saw temps of -30°. That sucked.

    The brine that is sprayed on the road irritates me. That stuff is hell on metal. I did clean under my Jeep a month back and sprayed Amsoil Metal Protect HD on the frame, differentials, etc.

    Even though I have fun cruising untouched roads after a snowstorm, I pray that snowfall is done by February 1st. But that never happens.
