O/T Snow storm hits midwest

Ahh, just when I'm deraming of being able to pop the top on the old jeep and enjoy warm weather mother nature drops a foot of snow here. Ah well, I guess I'll just have to go drift running instead.

Re: O/T Snow storm hits midwest

Yeah, we only got a few inches of it down here. I've been waiting all winter for a big snow storm to play in, just had that one ice storm so far. We tie a rope to the jeep and pull the sled around. It's pretty fun when you get going about 30mph. My buddy used to have a pair of Sled Dogs we did it with. They're like ski's, but only 2' long and about 6" wide. Perfect for pulling behind the jeep. Guess that's one good thing about having crappy road maintenance, more sled time. I'm enjoying it while it's here, a few more months and it'll be 100*.

Re: O/T Snow storm hits midwest

We only got about 3 inches here in the northern high plains [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]. We are so dry it's not even funny. I was dreaming we would get a foot of wet snow to help out our wheat crop.

My girlfriend said if I spent one more dime on my Jeep she would leave. Man I'm going to miss her!

Re: O/T Snow storm hits midwest

I don't know how much we got here, the wind has blown it all around. Some places you would have to measure with a micrometer and other places with a yardstick.


I've replaced so many parts that my old Jeep has become my new Jeep.

Re: O/T Snow storm hits midwest

We got a heavy sleet followed by a lite snow. Winds are about 25 mph making the wind chill near 0. Brrrrr! Mid teens tonight. Its ok, I like it better than that 100 degree crap we will be having way before I'm ready!

Re: O/T Snow storm hits midwest

outside chicago we are up to about 5" of snow and it isn't letting up. The roads have gotten kinda bad, my parents won't let me drive the 20 min. (would probably be 40 now) to my girl friend's house but my friends are comming over and i'm off out into the mess to go pick up a huge order at dominos. I'm happy it's sticking if the weather kinda clears tomrow my swampers will be here and i'll probably go wheeling.
