It's slumbering in the garage and I'm out rallying around in an Audi wagon with 4" of ground clearance! Could have used the truck today but instead I had to use my dad's truck. Diesel super duty with a 6 speed! He needs ball joints bad. It all clunks and rattles.

Yea, I've been outnabout in my Outback wagon. Gotta say that it does sooooo much better than the truck, in the snow. All stock even.

But this year I didn't get any sandbags. Also, (for those in the PNW) how often has this type of event occurred up here? Really, not often enuf for me to worry about it. If I really need weight in the back, I'll just fill the bed with snow as I shovel the driveway! Don't need to offload it either... win-win!

Gave my truck the day off since it's my day off work also...

I still need to fix/replace(I'll probably replace) the cracked exhaust manifold next week.

I haven't left the neighborhood all week with this snow. Don't wanna risk dumping the truck in a ditch (the side of the road is about a 4' drop around here). The E350 is AWD but I run summer tires on it all the time because this is Alabama and it's not supposed to get this cold lol.

4"?!?! I don't even bother to lock the hubs for 4 inches of snow! I was out in 6-8 inches with my low Audi wagon rubbing it's belly in the snow.

I went out east this past weekend for the first time in like 5 years. I actually decided I would just rent an AWD car for the occasion and I am glad I did. Some guy decided to overtake me on a curve in the snow while there was another oncoming car and just the insurance itself would have made it money very well spent.
