Snow?


If we had any kind of snow like the Midwest or Northeast this state would shut down for a month.

I am on the borderline of ice and snow and as time goes on, it is looking like more snow. Ice + high wind = no power, no heat (minimal heat) and no water. I also have rentals in town. What a disaster!!

I am hoping for snow!!!

we are currently in the middle of getting several inches of sleet and who knows what else.

The Mrs drove her 2wd stick XJ to work this morning so needless to say I'm going to have to pick her up in the YJ when she gets off.

pics to follow

Think Green recycle your YJ's sway and trac bars today!

We are about to get pounded by the wind more than the snow. With 4in of fluffy snow patiently waiting on the ground to be blown around by 30mph winds, tonight will be a crappy 30mile drive home.
Not a wheelin pic but post-wheelin sitting behind the bar. The wife and I went ripping through some deep hay/bean feilds and got the wheels packed with hard snow and had to pull over to get it out so not to shake ourselves to death on the highway.

Drove home in the beginning of the storm last night at 3am. It's now turned to ice. Looking forward to my drive to work today... the Jeep has been handling the weather great.

Not much snow but lots and lots of sleet. About to head out.

I have heard "Good thing you have that Jeep" about 10 times today! The downside is that my boss already said that I should be the last two leave today because "I have that Jeep". All I can say is why would someone buy a sports car for a DD when you live in the midwest? Jeeps work the best in the snow and sunshine (:

Tell him that you don't want to sit in three hours of traffic with everyone that doesn't have a Jeep. Honestly in the Chicago area a 4x4 is really not needed all but maybe 5 days a year. We normally just don't get that much snow.

Sports cars are a lot of fun. I like them also. British ones mostly - MGs, Triumphs, and Jags.

They are awesome in the Spring, Summer, and Fall in New England.

But, they are not the car to have TODAY in New England.
