9:30 over here on the east coast...

And well lets just say the snow just started falling. Supposed to be 6-10 inches and i know alll of you know this the bonnie does not have great clearence.. Nor does it handle well in the snow... Tires just spin like crazy.

This is going to be one fun day. By tomorrow there saying a foot of snow is possible. Unbelievable

That storm ended here last night and left us with 7-8 inches of powder. It'a slow moving storm that never stops dumping snow

If you have to go out in the stuff, please be careful. It'* the other 'guy' you've got to watch out for!!! We don't need any more Bonnies in the junk yard and we certainly don't want to see any of our forum friends hurt.

Well I had my taste with the ice last year... Took my 3500 to get her back up and running.. Hoping to not have a repeat cause it was about this time last year as well.

I agree u do have to watch out for the other guy However, with the power our cars put out sometimes the tires are hard to control!
