Default This ice storm not being kind to the Bonneville...

Doors froze shut, trunk froze shut, broke the little door medallion trying to bust the ice from it to open, then while driving the ice and sleet packed up so solidly in the wiper cavity that they stopped mid stroke! P****** me off for sure LOL. At least we still have power this go round, not like 02, but I can't say the same for our Kansas friends. Hope they are warm and fed.

I talked to my girl in Kansas, and she said it was pretty bad up there. And she barely has any gas in her car, but cant get in to start it up because of the inches of ice covering it. Oweeee

Again, see above. The one good thing about living down here: no snow. I refer to my previous statement

I hate ice storms. They suck!!! I don't even try to get out and drive when its like that. Luckily in MS they close down pretty much everything when we get some snow/ice. We don't have snow plows or salt trucks so things get bad. It is a beautiful day today, had to have the a/c on at work.
