We're supposed to get somewhere around a foot up here in Northern Colorado. And all I have to drive is the Mustang...lol. Hopefully I can take my dad's Mirage with its wicked 92 HP and 93 foot-pounds of torque


I know you guys in the northern states are just guffawing at the thought of a foot of snow, but we usually only get dustings in Fort Collins. I think Mile High JDF's area is going to fare significantly worse than mine haha

Supposed to get some snow here again by Wed. Cold and clear outside right now. 38 right now on the deck. Been getting a lot of rain. The Trinity River has been running high and swift. This is going to help our drought. So the snow will be a welcome sight. We had a very white Christmas. The Trinity's have been getting plenty of snow during these waves of storms coming off the pacific. Keep it up Ma-nature.

Damn, used to get hit pretty good when I lived in Longmont and remember my mom complaining when she lived in Ft Collins.

KC here. Haven't had really any snow this year. It's a bummer for me, I like the snow. Last week they said we were going to get 4-8 inches tomorrow, now they're saying just rain, zero snow.

Oh the joys to be wrong all the time.

I mean, we get the occasional 3-4 inches, but we had about 13" predicted and I think it'll likely be much closer to 2" haha Colorado weather for ya

The only thing they could get right on the forecast was the wind, and that was only because it blew all the time

For sure haha we even had a winter storm warning for our area from all of last night and whatnot, then it went away after hardly any snow fell. Now we have another winter storm warning as of 40 minutes ago. Make up your mind, meteorologists

I always hope for a few small snow events in this area. We end up with 1-2 3" or less snowfalls each year. I have 2 plows, a skid pusher, a few spreaders and make a killing with it.

You look like you got hit almost as hard as we did. Driving home from work at 4 in the morning kind of sucked. Glad I don't dd a mustang any more.

What's your DD now? And I'm not even touching the Mustang until some of this snow clears up. There's too many stupid drivers around here

That definitely sounds like a more reasonable DD for when it snows than a Mustang. I need to get that limited-slip differential put it and whatnot. My friend's car got stuck dropping me off and I cut into my sandbag to help him out, now I need a new one. 120 lbs ain't enough

Yeah it's much easier to get around in. My mustang would be a snow plow if I managed to make it out of the driveway. I never did sand bags in my old mustang, but snow tires work amazing.

Unfortunately, I have a set of all-seasons on there. They work great if the snow/ice is minimal, but they're definitely not cut out for the days where there's two or more inches
