Drift bustin!

We didn't get too much snow here overnight but the wind has been real bad. It made some pretty sweet drifts out in the student parking lot, some where up to my hood! I had those all busted up by the time I started taking pics but they were pretty cool.

Now my abs light is on, which I know is normal but my brakes are making a wheezing noise, which I've never had before. I'm gonna go drive it again in a couple hours so hopefully it clears itself up. Its gone now

I hope the brakes weren't hot when you parked it.
Any snow on / around them will melt and then refreeze . You'll have a hard time getting the truck to move with the brakes frozen.

I get the ABS light once in a while while driving in snow. I just restart the truck and it goes away.

i wonder if snow is getting stuck in the toner ring things that the ABS sensor uses to detect when wheels are locked. That could cause it to turn on.
Also, i hope you cleared out your grille..even in cold weather engines need cooling. just sayin.

I have that problem but I don't think what you are saying is possible on a 4wd.

I was kinda surprised, I parked it and went back out to it a hour later and most of the snow had already melted, but I was gonna clear it out.
