    I got back from up nort today after heading up on Friday. We were going to go up the week before, but the weather was supposed to be horrible. High winds, 12" of snow. We get there this time and of course it's bone dry. No snow, no nothing but beautiful clear property. Then Saturday afternoon it starts. Snow cone ice starts falling. By Sunday afternoon, there's six inches of ice on everything. Luckily, all of our utilities are underground, but it wreaks havoc on trees. Listened to ice fall for basically 24 hrs. straight. Then the temp drops, and it turns to snow. 8" worth on top of 6 " of ice. Green Bay, Wi got 18".....................I didn't feel like dealing with any of it, so I didn't. Comes time to leave and I tell the wifey that we should just be able to pack up and drive out over the top of the snow/ice. Wrong..........I get stuck in the driveway, and was lucky to get the car back in the pole barn. Now I'm pissed off. POS Honda, with the kick down tranny when the tires spin is useless in icy snow, or any kind of snow for that matter. Absolutely no traction. I'm forced to fire up the snow blower, which I thought I was done with this year, and cut some tracks. The wife said that the last time she heard language come out of my mouth like that, was also snow related. Needless to say, I didn't get a chance to talk to my neighbor................maybe next time..............

    A ton of snow over a thick sheet of ice and you're blaming the Honda? Now that there is just funny.

    I bought my first 4x4 truck in 1975. Pretty much haven't been without one since.

    Glad you had food, shelter, and heat to see you through. You never know, it might be a good thing that you didn't make it to the road. Sounds like some nasty driving weather for sure. Would have been way worse except for the global warming....

    Our annual trip to SW Colorado was snowless this past Christmas, but my son got married just north of Columbus, Ohio, mid January. We drove up there, leaving about 12 hours earlier than planned because a big winter storm was coming in. We beat it there then had lots of Winter Storm Hunter. I got to play around in a big parking lot practicing slides, spins, and drifting, with recoveries. I love my AWD GMC Savana Van. I put a bed frame in the back and we spent the first night there in the Hollywood Casino parking garage. That's camping out... that and Rest Areas... for us these days. We left town as the edge of Winter Storm Inga arrived there. We saw bad accidents and traffic backed up on the other side, but we outran the storm in a few hours and had a nice drive back. It has been cooler lately, but we've seen temps approaching 90 a few times. Yesterday I had some shopping to do and took that opportunity to go over to the top of the dune at the beach. It was a beautiful day with temperature at 71 and about a 10-mph wind from the West. :-) Sunny and 61° now. Jacksonville Beach yesterday:

    I sure want me one of them AWD Savanna's myself but so far it just ain't happening for me. The search continues.

    Your looking mighty fine with the whiskers and all.
