Looks like the darkest part of that red is going right over my house. Guess it'* a good thing the SSEi is in a shed or I'd be scooping up snow with the intercooler.

Which made me think of a great mod. I'll attach powerful shop vacs to the fog light holes and use them to suck all the snow out of my way and blow it at the person behind me so they quit tailgating!

The LeSabre and I are going into work Wednesday and Thursday in this mess, 2" or 20.. no choice. Wonderful, aint it? We were swamped as hell at the store today. People stocking up like its the end of the world.
Can't even use the excuse if the close the roads. Grocery is an "essential business" so we can't call in just because they close the roads.
And of course, I'm still riding on the crappy all season tires that are barely safe on dry summer roads. Lets just say that the TC and learning to drift a FWD around corners has become the everyday norm on the 30 mile ride to work up and over the mountains.
Did I mention I live at the top of a hill with a 15%+ grade that school buses can't get up, and plows almost never come up here?

The last really big snow we got here, the road was drifted over so bad, the town plow got stuck, so they sent a state plow up here to drag it out. It got stuck. Called the local contractor and his loaded got stuck trying to pull out the state plow. His dozer finally managed to get everything yanked out and the road plowed through. We had 10' drifts higher than my basketball hoop in the driveway.

This should be fun...
