As long as the Bonnie wasnt damaged i would say that your okay. But that must have been one crazy storm. Im guessing very high winds?

There'* the Bonneville playing in the snow. It took me half an hour to dig it out. I took this picture a little after I got done clearing the driveway, and by now it'* almost buried again.
