You're lucky, we get plenty of snow here in Indiana. I'm nervous about rear wheel drive this winter, never done that before 😰

I like a nice fluffy white snow on Christmas.... And a good snow to take my dogs sledding.... Then I'm done

Yeah, my Ex Wife is from Marion, IN. We used to go up there to visit over the Holidays. RWD's on snow is not too difficult . It's the Black ice that'll have you towing your car outa a ditch. Just remember, the moment you lose grip, stay off the gas and the brake and gently try to steer yourself to safety. You'll do fine.

Thanks so much for the advice! I'll keep that in mind. Any ideas for good blades for this weather?

I drove all of last winter with my stang in muncie. no wrecks, but i had a few close calls. just go slower than you think you need to and be super careful accelerating through turns.

I moved back Down to Florida from PA when I was 13. I loved the snow as a kid. Now I'm not so sure. Only seen it once in 14 years

I heard EverBlades makes heated wiper blades. I don't know if they are any good.
Also, you could treat your windshield with rainX and that helps to keep the ice from building up on your windshield.

Dunno about that. Last summer we had a long hot summer. We did see a freak 10-12 inches a couple of years ago in DFW but doubt we will ever see that again.
