I have a slow daily driver 2000 Subaru Forester, I drove it all winter with practically no snow. I buy a fun performance oriented Focus ST and its almost snowed more since I bought the ST than it had all winter, forcing me to drive the Forester. Why must Mother Nature ruin my plans to drive the more fun car. :furious:

Hahaha cracking me up on these photos. @StevenST down there in Columbus, Georgia you probably never see this stuff. I remember being at sand hill in basic years back, it snowed .5 inches and shut everything down.

Nope, maybe 1 time every 2 or 3 years. It was 49 here today. And that sucks

When I hear people who live where it's supposed to snow complain, my response is usually something like "then move". I don't complain about the heat in the summer, stop complaining about the snow in the winter lol

Some of us can't move because we go to school up north. If the job field was good in the south I'd move in a heartbeat. I like the cold but am not a fan of snow

There is a lot of fun to be had up north in the snow, and plenty of reasons why we stay up here. I usually don't hear that many complaints about snow during the season, it's always the last punch to the gut that gets everyone. All the snow toys are put away, you've gotten a hint of warmer weather and starting bringing the summer toys out, and all of sudden were back into freezing weather. And since it only lasts a day or two, you can't bring out the snow toys and your left with nothing to do but complain about it.

Also, a benefit of the tiny gas tank is that you don't have to stand outside in the cold as long.

That's exactly it, last weekend it was 71 on Saturday and 68 on Sunday and decent in the 50s-60s the rest of the week. Then boom cold and snow again. Just like you said I got a taste of the warm weather and it was the last punch in the gut

Exactly. The weather has been very moody. Such a tease

I love the cold and snow, but once you tease me with the warmth, just stay warm.

Last year when I bought my car we got a foot of snow the very next day and I could not drive my car for a couple weeks! It had the stock F1s on it, so even trying to move it out of the road with less than an inch of snow around it was near impossible.

Oh man that would anger me, I just dont like driving it when its too cold with the F1s or when there is any chance of snow. I dont want to chance it but damn I want to drive this car everyday.

Currently my only car and the cheapest Forester around here is a 1993 with 198k miles for 5,100 bucks. Nope. Lol I do need a good beater though to save my ST a little more in the future.

Wow thats outrageous. My Forester is a 2000 with 196K on the clock, it gets the damn job done though. I still get ~400 miles to a tank. Its perfect for winter, cloth seats, heated wipers, heated seats, heated side mirrors. So it has the winter essentials.

I was about to buy winter tires for my ST, even had a junk set of stock rims to use. Ended up getting my moms jeep since it sat in the road for months and leaked coolant like crazy. Fixed it up and its been my daily all winter. I still hear great things about the ST in the snow, would be fun to do some reverse doughnuts in!
