Please post pictures or videos of snow/ice and your cars in your area! 88 million expected to be affected.

I love the snow however we in the Midwest don't have much so far. I would be doing donuts in an empty parking lot.

Needless to say ...be safe and stay warm!

2 feet? That would not even delay me getting to work in the morning.

I understand less snow removal infrastructure though. Seriously, go to the liquor store and stock up, stay warm down there.

I live in a place where I have a clear view of I-66.

I anticipate I'll have some interesting watching of the storm as the day goes on. Hell, it was crazy to watch just two days ago when the entire region came to a standstill over an inch of snow since no one cared to pre-treat the roads.

Took me 3 hours to drive 11 miles while I watched helpless SUV's and cars spinning around, meanwhile my RWD F30 just casually went about it's business...snow tires make a world of difference.

In NJ here, and today put my snow tires on for the storm. My area is looking to get about 12-18 inches so I'm not sure how my sport pack E92 is gonna get around with the low front end.

Not sure why everybody is getting so worked up. '94 in Hoboken we had 34" that was snow. Shoveled off the roof several times to keep the weight off it. Just a good storm. Break out the skis!

Yea - remember that blizzard. Thunder and Lightning in a snow storm!

While 34" is a shit ton of snow...you guys up north are prepared for these level events more often.

In '94, we had 2.5' of Snow in NC and it crippled the state for a week...

seriously. we've had much worse before. its an inconvenience at most. I'm mostly irritated that the car will get dirtier for longer because of the salt.

Here in England many cars run summer tyres year round and so an inch of snow halts the whole country.

Look forward to your pics. We've had the mildest December on record and even today it's 50 degrees! Consider London, England is a similar latitude to Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Very different places thanks to the Gulf stream and land masses etc.

Hopefully get some soft stuff later. The ice kind of sucks, snow is more enjoyable.
