I received a new job in Seattle so I will be leaving Minneapolis on January 26th and hopefully arriving in Seattle on January 30th. This is roughly 1600 miles across I-90. What I would like to know is that given the current snowstorms in the NW, will this be possible in a front-wheel drive Honda Civic (with recently purchased tire chains). The other option would be to travel down a more Southern route to California and then up the coast on I-5. I realize this is a longer distance but the entire trip may be quicker than driving 25 mph on a more direct route.
