at first i was like... what... snow in so cal? then i thought to my self "oh ya, we have the grapevine" fu*k the grapevine it sucks *** to drive because everyone passes me cause my truck dogs on it haha or when its closed and my trip from l.a. to here is way longer because i have to go all the way around thru the tehachapi (sp?) . oh well right on and gotta love bringing home a bed full of snow.
