Ahhh.... snow.

We got some snow here in Baltimore, about 7" or so. Besides getting to use 4wd today, I finally made use of the tow straps collecting dust in the back of the Jeep. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] My neighbor got himself really stuck in his Toyota Tercel since they plow the parking lot right up behind your car. I honestly didn't even notice that I was hooked to it while I was dragging him out.
His girlfriend was standing next to Jeepchick while I yanked him out....
All the girl did was drop her jaw and say "nuh uh!". [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
Gotta love a 258.
Here are some pics of the snow. Enjoy!

You suck!! We NEVER get snow like that. Well, I shouldn't say never...we get it about once every 5+ years.

Re: Ahhh.... snow.

Actually, Baltimore sucks for snow. We always get skipped when it comes to a good size snow fall. Two years ago a Nor-easter blew right over us. Philly got about 18" (90 min north) and and everywhere just outside of the 90-100 mile radius around Baltimore got snow. [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] We were completely skipped over while everyone else got to enjoy the white stuff. [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: Ahhh.... snow.

Ummm....where is the snow in the pics? I see a small amount of termination dust, but no SNOW! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

We've been lucky so far. We are fast approaching the latest I've ever seen here in Alaska for not having snow. Heck, we had highs in the 40s today! [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

Since I've got a 4wd truck with studded snow tires, I have always sworn I'd never drive the jeep in the winter since the short/narrow wheelbase on my '74 CJ5 is kinda "squirrely". However, one of the clubs based near where I live does some snow runs in the winter....I may have to relent on that and try it out!

Well, have fun, and remember it's far harder to stop in that white stuff than to go! [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Ahhh.... snow.

Harder to stop in the snow? Nah, just ask all the idiots here that ran their vehicles into trees, telephone poles, & other vehicles. Most sopped pretty dang quick! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Besides, 4 wheeldrive *must* means it's OK to go 55 in a 35mph zone with 5" of snow on the ground, ...right? [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Ahhh.... snow.

What's the big deal? We've got white stuff all over the ground here! Granted, it's sand, and in the low 70s, but still... [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
