first real snow of the season

Rusty was loving it.



Wife hated it and said commute was hell.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

That just shows their love for you Unless you are out there "enjoying" the frigid temperatures with them, they have no fun.

I love snow and I love my wonderful rally inspired AWD system. If only the tires could keep up. Stopping on the other hand with summer tires on is a chore but I am hoping snow tires get here soon. AWD donuts. Ummmm.

I like when the snow gets deeper, at least 4", the dog runs around with his head in the snow,acting like a little plow it's hilarious!

Drove the wifey to the Metra station this morning, the Scion XB, ABS and traction control system

I have made it a personal pledge not to go anywhere on the first "real" snow of the season.

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

I have a Golden named Homer. He's gonna be runnin', chasin' the cats, and peeing up a storm! We've just started to get the snow that you got this morning.

"For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, 'He has a demon.' The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Here is a glutton and a drunkard..."

The first turn is the worst turn, between the left ear and the right one.
