They had literally just received a shipment moments before I walked in, so I figured, heck, I'll buy some. Within moments, 50 people came to the store and got in line with me -- they had apparently been calling constantly and the store just told them to come in before they ran out. Total mad house.

The WRX seems to work fine on snow and ice and I probably didn't need the chains. But I didn't want to wind up like these guys (I enjoyed this video, thought you might):
