    Snow=big dollars with AWD and good ground clearance. Ice and I stay home. We shall see.

    "Pro" tip. In deep snow turn VSA off or you won't be able to move.

    they are talking 1/4" ice coverage, which would be treacherous

    I agree 100 % I normally drive my Kia Soul around but will be taking my AWD sorento out instead this weekend. Here’s to hoping for some decent money

    Where are you getting 12-18 inches. I'm seeing a forecast of 4-8 inches in St. Paul. I have a 2015 Prius with winter tires. It's great in the snow, up to about 8-10 inches. I love driving in the snow.

    VSA or Traction Control on some vehicles.
    I am surprised how many people have no idea and lack a basic knowledge of how their car functions.
    You see them all the time.

    Turn it back on when you're on the highway.

    Try to turn off Traction Control it is a lot of fun
    There's a video on YouTube how to do it

    I’m gonna watch the next 24 hours closely. Bad weather is great for demand, especially for Plus and Premier when basic Lyfts are too far away. BUUUUT.... I don’t want someone sliding into me on the road either. If it was just powdery dry snow like last month, no problem. Ice is deadly

    A Prius good in 8-10 inches of snow? You’re talking about a plowed road and 8-10 in yards and everywhere but the road right? Because only way I see that happening is with a lift kit.

    Ya it's been at 2.0 for a couple of hours. St paul has 1.3 boost for some reason.

    Sidenote..it's nice to sit at home on a Friday night and have a beer, cheers!
