Snow Posin'

Well New Years eve/day we got 30-40cm of fine powdery snow. (12-15") This was accompanied by 80-100km/h gusts of wind (50-60mph) so it was nicely drifted around. I didn't get any pics playing during the storm as my copilot/woman/photographer wouldn't get out in knee deep snow to take action shots in a white out... lol. But here's some of a nearby gravel pit.

That last one is my weight setup this year. ~200lbs of sand in the plastic boxes over the axle.

Unless you drive an acura. A guy I know was "just going through a parking lot" when he hit the curbs that were put in the middle of the lot to keep people from doing donuts there. They're rebarred into the pavement. Got his bumper, tire, rim, exhaust and there's red stuff coming from under it and it knocks.

I lol'ed cause well... he's a dummy.

I picked up my tonneau used on kijiji for $120.

The plows don't plow out this lot which is why they had the donut problem.

he he we had snow drifts over the hood of my ranger on my road to my parents house. normally they are only like two feet deep at the most. the drifts had closed the road down to one lane... untill my little red ranger punched the second lane back in lol. didn't ever get stuck in one because the snow was so powdery.

Thats the best part about owning a good truck.. "Making the lane" during a fresh snow in :-D I do it all the time, make my side where it should be, and get rid of that stupid middle lane everyone seems to drive in during a snowstorm. Except for the frozen slush trails.. I pretty much hate that crap, you cant steer, and if you get out of the tracks.. your stuck at 15mph or youll spin out real fast.
