I don't like automatics in the snow, other than that my sister's little fwd Cavalier is awesome.

I work the upper Mississippi and Illinois. I know there are tow restrictions between St. Louis and cario. Down to 20 barges, we have our smaller boats running between there for lighter drafts. Today stl was -3.00 may be about -4 by the 31.

It's not looking good.

Then you probably pass by Festus/Crystal City on a regular basis.

Not looking too good at all.

I rarely go past stl. I always turn there and head back north. I've been to cario 3-4 times. I know grand tower rock is a bad ass area right now. Real low.
