Yep - not driving from the Northland to Legends. Not worried about me, it's the other idiots.

We have 4-5 inches in the rural Chanute area so far. We drove up and down the steeper roads our rural mail carrier has trouble with. My goodness, the Wrangler is amazing on snow. Never slipped or spun a tire.

Upstate NY is expecting up to 12" through 10 o'clock tomorrow night (Wednesday) starting tonight around 10pm...this could get interesting...again. This will be the 3rd time this year we've gotten a whole lotta snow in a short period of time. I'm pretty happy with how well the Wrangler has performed so far, except for all the g0%4*mn electronic "nanny systems" that prevent me from power sliding around corners!

Went out for about 45 min today. Thing was a beast. Didn't even notice the snow. Love going by Chevy, Fords, etc and the "how is he getting around so easily" look

I'll be out in the snow around 4:30am. Most of the time I've got the road to myself. Looks like about 10 inches for Akron so it should be fun. Just found out the salt trucks will be on their lightest settings due to low supplies and budgets. We get a little bit of everything in northern Ohio so a Jeep makes sense.

I had a 3 mile drive to work this morning. I live on the west side of Cleveland and the roads were really bad.... well they were bad for the cars anyway. I pulled into work and only a few coworkers were there. The other JK, two WJ's, a Patriot, and a few cars.

Nice! Born and raised in Fairview Park. Today's drive was through the metro parks, and down Puritas road in nasty conditions.

Yeah...the commute today in the burbs of Chi-town sucked as well.

I'm really impressed with this JK in bad weather. The stock Bridgestones have been great...and between 4WD, Trac-Lok and traction control...I'm able to easily get moving (espedially turning into traffic) from a stop.
