Finally got snow

We finally got snow, a quick 2 inch dusting with another storm expected to drop 6 more tomorrow. It's days like today that crappy MPG all pay off. I just can't decide if i want to take the top off while I'm having fun. Snow, snow, snow. Ok I feel better, thanks for putting up with my excitement. Off to play!!!!!!!

Joe.

We should hopefully get some snow tonight in PA. With any luck, my wife will have me run errands tomorrow in the snow. Pretty twisted thinking ,,,,,

Only got like a little over an inch in MD, dumb county salted all the roads and ruined any fun I might have. At least I can still park on the snow piles in plowed parking lots.

First time we've gotten over an inch here. JUST over an inch.

No joy.

I just went out in the thick of our snow here in NY. It was all of 1 inch and was pretty pathetic. I wish we had more snow this winter to play in

I purposely saved all my errands till today. Win/win - I get to play in the snow & the stores are empty! Still snowing, but not nearly enough for my liking.

You speak the absolute truth. My buddy and I were heading to the Indoor Shooting Range at 9am this morning and stopped at Walmart to pick up some bulk ammo. There was almost nobody there... AWESOME! Parked right up front, got what we needed, and checked out... no wait. Loving the snow! Wish we had some more though.

Got snow here... but not enough! I dont think the sky can drop enough snow to stop Jeepers from playing!

A solid 8 iches today. In 50 years of winter driving I have never had a better vehicle. The stock rubber works VERY well. Love the way the JK simply just goes......no fuss, no bother. A very solid feel when driving in both packed and unbroken snow. Also FYI, the yellow tint to my fog and driving lights worked GREAT.
