It's a medium pace, big flake storm right now here. Starting to mildly accumulate but not much yet.

if you look at the ConUS sat loop from NOAA, the storm is a big, fat arrow pointed at chicago.

arrow-up Too bad there's no big lot around my house, the forest preserve parking lot on Cicero that I went 2 years ago to is somewhat small, good enough for a donut and nothing else.

Re: We got a Snowstorm Dominick, and it's coming your way reaaaaal fast!

I'm always on the lookout for a good lot.

The local high school has a good lot that has no cars and isn't plowed at night.

There is also a Ginormous lot at this train station a few towns over that has no cars at night. It is freakin' huge.

the way you reportedly drive?  4 hours.  if it was justin, 3 1/2, nice wide shoulders north of madison.   biggrin  really, it takes me anywhere between 4-5 hours depending on traffic and where in chicago.  if i take the scenic route up from madison, its actually shorter mileage but takes an hour longer from all the twisties....so sorry...you're SOL for a little drifting.

I feel the same way.  My stockers are getting worn down.  How many miles you got on yours?

Re: We got a Snowstorm Dominick, and it's coming your way reaaaaal fast!

I think I have about 35k on mine... geeze that is kind of a lot. There is still plenty of tread left but nowhere near a new tire.

The side streets were very slick last night...it was the perfect snow amount for slickness, so I guess it wasn't all the tires' fault.

Pat, where did you go last night?  I drove around in one of those office complex parking lots in my neighborhood....

RWD donuts > Awd donuts..... wait, wagon's suspension is stock... so, may be thats why.

I don't have too much exposure to RWD donuts. I think with awd donuts you can control them more, have looser circles.

confused  Who knows. They are fun as hell. Just give it more gas. I usually leave it in first or maybe 2nd.

I was at the Whitlock Park parking lot in Westmont. Fairview and Ogden.

Decent lot. No cars, nice and big, unplowed.  roxor

The parking lot at work.
Sorry about the camera phone pics.  Yes, that's an outback sport on the end - belongs to our other sales guy.  we were a couple driftin' fools last night before heading home.
