The only way to walk around in snow here is to get to know a Columbian drug dealer really well.

Top down, doors off, cruising.......

I think the snow is awesome. We ahd a pretty good snow storm roll through here (Salt Lake City Valley, Utah) yesterday so wwe have plenty to play in.

My ESP is out as well, due to a previously broken axle and currently borrowing a pieced together rear axle assembly from TeraFlex until the Tera 60 is ready, and I am having a blast. I hated having that ESP ruining all of my fun last winter.

LOL, we have snow here on the southern end of Vancouver Island, and there is another snow storm on its way as I write this post. It never seems to fail that those that think they know how to drive in the snow actually can't. Soccer Moms and the YUPPIES that have the fancy blinged out 4X4s are the root cause of most of the accidents here. There are also those that have incorrect tires for the weather. I watched a guy the other day with bald tires try and make it up a slight incline to the mall parking lot...............
the song clip "Slip Sliding Away" came to mind

Got about a foot on Friday and about another 10" so far today. Ironically enough besides time in the Army I've lived all my life in New England... and I hate the fracking snow.

I need to move someplace warm.

Soon.

Really, really soon!

NW Oregon got its worst snow storm since the 50's.



We got over a 5-6" which melted into 3-4" of slush which was topped by another 12-16" snow followed with 1/4" of ice and topped with another 3-4" of snow...



Some areas were without power for over a week now... The National Guard was called in to check on these areas where the plows can't reach. Luckily the neighborhood 4x4's drove around enough to pack the snow down. Here is one of the 8x8's that cruised round on 6-8" packed snow...



Once the snow stopped falling, it started raining and the snow acted like a sponge holding in a lot of water causing roofs to fail collapsing down under the weight.
