Last 24 hours has brought upon 70cm of snowfall with roads almost impassible, heavy drifting, white outs and sub zero windchill temps, but I still drove my "daily driver" into work this morning.....all be it only reached speeds of 60-70 kph and in most cases never got out of 2nd gear except when on the highway (then I put it to 3rd).

(2.5cm=1 inch 60 kph=40 mph)

I pass a lot of SUV'* in the ditch under these kind of driving conditions all the time with my Bonnie!
