Polar White.....

I live in the foothills outside Denver and we got over 70 inches of snow in our two blizzards. This was the Speed6 after the first storm. I never got it dug out before going out of town. We returned just as the second blizzard started. After that one, the car was just a little lump in the snow. It took about an hour just to uncover the car, but I still haven't moved it due to the driveway and road being a mess.

Neighbors with similar AWD cars (Acuras, Lexus, Subaru) who had to use them spent hours digging out from stucks. I have a 4Runner and a Chevy pickup, so the Speed6 can wait until the road is a little safer. I live on a private dirt road with a 20% grade in one spot. It can be a little exciting.

NOOO!!!!! You shouldn't have dug it out. This would have been a real test of the MS6's AWD capability! Just find the door, get in, and see if you can get the car out :laugh:

This has been a very strange winter for us here in New England...this upcoming week will be in the mid 40's, and really haven't had any accumulating snow at all yet. That is VERY unusual. I'm sorta glad though...

I hear how horrible the stock Bridgestone's are in the snow, so I will probably use the Mustang with the Blizzaks this winter, until I can afford to shell out $900 for a set of rims and snow tires...

:laugh: ...I'll be leaving the new AWD car at home when the weather is bad and driving a RWD V8 mustang as my winter beater...
