Those re-entry curves of the front wheel wells make for fine snow scoops! They pack up with snow to the point the wheels can't turn. Don't ask how I know!

Sounds like about 3 foot of snow to me.

Actually, at first glance the license plate made it look like it was sticking it's tongue out at the snow (to my warped mind, at least);)

Shoot judt got around yesterday to shoveling out the entrance door to my garage. The bay doors are still buried in thee feet of snow pushed up on them by the snow plow clearing the alley. The bad thing is we are expecting more on Thursday.

'Gosh darn that Global Warming!!'

"For the HUNDREDTH TIME..." (It was a spell of warm weather in Sweden that ended up pushing the Goths down into Rome. You have been warned!)

Used to be a sad, faded-red Avanti in my parts that got used as a winter car on purpose. It had. A Trailer Hitch. Welded to the trunk support. The owner said, "Well, it's plastic, I figured it wouldn't rust out." I had to walk away. The Romans had this saying, de gustibus non est disputandum, but they couldn't say that in Swedish. "Volvo" on the other hand is Latin. Huh.
