Dreaded SC snow

Well it's snowing here in SC. Already tired of it and it's only been snowing an hour and a half.

Darn, no snow here in Columbia. I guess I will not be able to do donuts in the snow and will have to be satisfied with just doing donuts on asphalt! I hope my car has enough power to do it.

I went to Florence to buy my car. Not someplace I want to do donuts in the snow at. The dealership was not too nice.

r170's in the snow, with ice hanging off them?

We should be thinking about claybaring. Only saying, then polish and wax and give it a hard polish too! Wash after clay baring through, obviously, before polish and waxing.
