the winter storm we got

I hadn't got a chance to try my tires out in snow deep snow. So went for a drive and took some pics. I know its not much snow compared to what some of you get, but I thought they did pretty good.

snow drift in my backyard has settled now, but it was about 3 feet, work, there was snow piled around a fence (natural) walking ontop of it, my feet sank in about 8 inches or so, and the top of the 7' fence was below my nipples... i figure the drift was about 4 feet tall... there was another one next door, that blocked the driveway, and was taller than any of the vehicles driving through there...
