...a winter where I only got to drive the pathfinder in snow once and it was 2 inches of light powder. And I live in Pennsylvania and Virginia! Weird.
So, the initial snowstorm only dropped 7 inches in my neighbourhood. Not bad, manageable. Most of it was melted by the end of the day too. Oh, but Lake Michigan likes to be a showoff...
Clear and sunny yesterday, haven’t had snow on the ground in several weeks, but it’s back. Nothing on the ground here downtown, but there’s almost 10cms at my house.
(rant, kinda). It’s 1:52 am and there’s currently a solid 4 inches of snow outside. Now for other cities, this might not be such a big deal, but Seattle? Oh boy.
Sadly, there are no decent roads anywhere near me, at least none that aren’t covered with people trying to go skiing. Also this is weird. I can’t remember the last time there was snow here in February, let alone this much. It’s probably 20-25cm.
Last winter I ran over some snow piles that an asshole land owner had plowed into the highway from his driveway and left them there. On a 45MPH curve, no less.
We had a BIT snow of snow overnight (30-40cm) and a lot of wind.
Glad I moved Humdrum to the bottom of the driveway! Now to shovel the driveway / her out for the next 3 hours (joy of joys) and wait for the DoT to plow our subdivision road...
The continued metamorphosis of my BMW into a pile of snow and ice had to be stopped today. Took me about 20 minutes to free it of what must have been 5 tons of snow and ice and to my surprise, the car actually started up pretty much instantly, just before it stalled again because of an apparent faulty crankshaft…
Got a little snow here so i got to test the new tires a bit. It was like an inch or two, so it was an absolute tank. Basically drove it like I was in a cold rain and didn’t slip the tires (Unintentionally) once. Also I only shifted into 4hi just to make sure it was still working.
Just noticed that I haven’t created a post in
7 5 months! To rectify this, have the E39 covered in surprise snow.
Happy winter solstice!
After a two shocking weeks of -15 and snow, we are back to our regularly scheduled west coast weather. Yesterday it rained, and today it was sunny and hit 9 degrees!
She wasn’t happy...
...but her rear brake parts still aren’t here yet.
Yesterday it snowed for the first time in Vancouver in 1000 days. Many buses abandoned, basically all the articulating ones jackknifed, and Simon Fraser University was closed because buses couldn’t get up Burnaby Mountain. I spent my day stuck behind people with summer tires. Today it is clear, sunny, and cold. More…
We finally got our first snow of the season. I’m excited even if you aren’t 😀. Sorry for the potato.
