My guess is instead of clearing the snow and letting the windshield slowly heat up it warmed too fast and made a tiny chip a giant crack. I used to watch it happen when I had the black focus

I'm loving all this snow. The WRX is a beast. Can hoon everywhere I want, or I can roll into the gas and it just goes whereever I point it. I'm glad I got the snow tires replaced with new ones this year.

Her car is a tank like the truck to. I was leaving suvs spinning there tires while I just went like there was no snow. Full time 4wd worked better then expected.

I have falken 912's in the back and Michelins up front. No issues at all. They decided to put a huge fricken pile at the end of the drive so I decided to plow through it before cleaning it up. Probably would've lost the front bumper of the svt
