Do you have almost half the schools in the state close early on March 31st due to a major snow storm. :(

Blame it on me -I washed the SSEi yesterday for the first time since I polished it 3-4 weeks ago.

it was fricken 50F out yesterday!

figures though. I just did a wash, claybar, cleaner wax, polish and gold class wax job on the 00. The drive to school this morning was so slushy/slippery that traffic was going 30mph in a 65.

Muddy driveway+sloppy snow+low tread tires=not going anywhere.

When backing down my ABS wouldn't even go off, I'd just slide until the tires got through the snow. I thought I was going to hit the wood pile. I figured after 4 tries I should give up.


Snow started around 8:45 this pic was taken at 9:30.
Oh well, a day off is always appreciated.
