Ripped both of the under panels off of my xi backing over the nice pile of snow left by the plow (I'm lazy and didn't shovel). Looks like that's going to be $200+ if I buy new.

I also woke up to a flat. It was fine a few days ago . So if I need a new tire I'll have to buy four, unless I buy new and have it shaved. One of the perks of owning AWD.

Faaantastic


And Ryan, you're right it didn't get much warmer lol

If my car is covered in rain does that mean I can post in here?

It's essentially snow, just in a different form.

Woohoo!

First time I've ever seen snow actually fall out of all the times I've gone to the snow.

What do the Randies think of that snow?

And geez, man, I live where it almost never snows and I've seen it snow many times. Of course, I've been around a long time.

teh randiez says 'get me back in teh house where its warmz'...

they probably like it for all of about 5 minutes before the cold really sets in with the wet factor, then it's no more funz. until then, tho, they probably think it's a blast.

my friends german shepherd loves the snow, though. she leaps about in it like it were a playground. i guess for her it is. her 'mom' doesn't like it so much, though, as her paws get all wet and track it in on the hardwood floors.

I've gone to the snow so many times but it just never will snow when I'm there. Maybe it was the Randies causing it.

They actually had a lot of fun, we went on a sleigh ride and played on the beach. I've been having my own fun and found an empty grocery store parking lot full of fresh powder to hoon in a little bit. Been using the E38 as a bit of a snow plow here and there.

It really started coming down good in the afternoon, they closed 89 through Emerald Bay so we got stuck going up to Truckee and will be taking 80 back.

Chad, you have to videotape the moment in life when you explain to them why they're called "The Randies"
