    Did you get like a foot or what to use 4hi? Because that would be considered a substantial amount of snow not a semi blizard :) Glad you were able to drive it around with no problems! Now to start pulling people out I have my Dodge, Chevy, Ford bail out plan in my taco. (tow strap, chains, shovel, some kitty litter and jumper cables hehe!)

    Gotta have the 4 seasons. Makes you appreciate it more. I had to dig my truck out so my wife could get to work. At the end of my street must have been 3-4 foot drift from the plows. Now my wife doesn't really take the truck unless need be so she was worried. I had her back it up and punch. She hit the bank, nose came up a tad and she busted right through it, fishtailed right onto the road and took off. I have never been more proud of my wife. She was so nervous that she would get stuck (she has an Acura TL). I had faith. Just needed to show her the way.

    I wish I had video man, friggin coolest thing. Snow bank was up to headlights lol.

    Totally agree... I've lived in places where there wasn't a "winter" and I hated it. Variety is the spice of life!

    East Coast guys might live on a different calendar but all my calendars say Dec. 21 is the start of winter.

    Rather see the start of spring though. (March 20)

    And meteorological winter actually begins on Dec. 1st. That's basically the day when we start expecting winter type storms on a regular basis, although we all know they can occur earlier, of course). It's an unofficial date.

    Too many "start" days for winter.

    Been a few times it seemed like the start was in October.

    Snow/cold is OK for a few days but I'd rather see warm weather.
