    I mean local local. Using that logic, Target is "local" too.

    Yeah, not convenient to you. Sorry. One of the guys invited us right up to the counter when we were there to peer over it and he was cutting steaks. He asked "how thick" and we got to basically choose the thickness of our ribeye. They also got us pigs' ears when we wanted to try and make them at home.

    back to winter.. another 2-5" today, and I can't get my snowblower fixed until next week. I skipped the gym last night in anticipation.

    I'm only about 45 north of you (and west), jen, and there must have been 50 robins in my yard just over a week ago. I wonder what they are eating.

    I make wheel tracks with the Outback down the road so the 4WD trucks and SUVs can get going in the morning.

    I was concerned about how the lighter, shorter wheel-based Crosstrek would handle the snow. Not any more ...

    But I still want a WRX.

    Love my Crosstrek. Best snow car I've ever driven hands down.

    The place we go won't cut without asking. The local farm is owned by the scum who fought any attempts to increase the school budget "if we don't fund it and things get bad enough people will send their kids elsewhere and then the financial need will go down". Yup. I would eat cat food before giving that guy my business.

    DO you use snow tires? Someone just suggested I get some, basically creating a winterized Subaru tank to drive around in

    Love my Crosstrek. Best snow car I've ever driven hands down.
    The Outback is still better in the snow than the Crosstrek to my hand, but the Crosstrek is better than 99.9% of what's out there.

    I'd keep an Outback or Crosstrek and the WRX would be a "dry pavement" car for me.

    Me. No. Never felt the need.
    But my cars tend to have under 30k so the all-weather tires are "new".
    (Yeah, I run them up close to original warranty and trade. I get mileage so to me, after I break it down it "don't cost nuffin.". It's actually, for me, cheaper to trade under the original warranty than to have to put on tires and do the scheduled maintenance; plus, I stay under full road side, but have never needed it.)

    A friend drives his Impreza WRX STI wagon with snow tires on it all winter.
    His wife has a Legacy that he puts snow tires on. He leaves the Ford Raptor in the garage and drives the Legacy in the snow.

    So yes, if you want a winterized Subaru tank, do it.

    The Subaru circle jerk is quite entertaining to a car guy.

    Would you rather we talk about the '81 Olds Cutlass with a Gen1 3.8L V6 that blew and I replaced with a 327 (Holley six-pack carb) out of a 'vette?

    My Subarus drive better in the snow (and this is a weather thread).
