I'm pretty excited for winter this year, mostly because I finally have me a 4x4 to have fun with. But also because I am actually ready for winter. All the leaves in the yard are raked up, got the cover on the camper and it's all cleaned up, and there are "no cars in the yard". And most importantly, the snowblower has been tested and approved.

Bring on the snow!!!!!! cheers

I will be finishing getting my museum piece snowblower up and running(its a 2 stage 1967 areins, but hey it beats shoveling) and putthing the winter tires on(thanks riggle!). I only want snow for like 1 month and then I will be ready for summer again.

I AM SO READY!!! I keep saying that it's been too warm and "nice" for this late in November...last year we had snow on the ground from Halloween through St. Patty's day. I think it's going to just DUMP on us soon (here in IL). Fingers crossed...

considering I'm going to be driving the deathtrap ('93 voyager running front brakes and mediocre front tires) because I don't have the G ready yet.. I'm unexcited for snow. My old craftsman snowblower hasn't made any noise since I got it off a friend of mine. This is gonna suck to put it mildly. Sad

Damn, you go extreme, have you had a back experience in the past, or just cautious?

id rather be ready than be stuck somewhere and salty on the side of the road. no mishaps in the winter, and havent gotten stuck. well i diddnt get the car stuck, but my dad did backing it out of the driveway, and needless to say hes an idiot.

moms really jams being careful down my throat for the winter, as she is from snow heaven, MN. where she used to live you'd easily get 2-3' of snow a year in a small town and it required everyone to have chained and studded tires when it actually snowed. shes from walker/akley btw if anyone knows where that is.

I hear you on the 4 x4! I just got a newer 4runner and i cannot wait to trash around in the snow!

That is a nice X-terra you got there DJ. i was looking at those at the same time and i picked the 4runner instead, i guess i'm a trader..... oh, well.

Nope, made it home. I kept putting off ordering my lug nuts so it was a little hairy. I will get the winter tires on next week when i get back. It was fun to say the least.

so much for having fun in the snow. my 4runner has all kinds of electronic wizardry and just cuts power when you floor it try to whip a shitty... damn technology taking all the fun out of driving, ha ha. I'm sure it will come in handy when i need it, or kill me when i pull out in front of someone going to fast for conditions.

I got my snow tires on just the day of the 1st big snow. Got the gf's snow tires on tonight. I'm ready now.

Only thing is. I got 2 more cars then I really want in the driveway. I thought this year was going to be a clear driveway year. Oh well.

I dont think your driveway has ever been clear from the sound of it. LOL When i was over you had like 5-6 cars or so in it and you said they were all yours. Thanks for the nx fender by the way. Very Happy

Yang, think about it this way, the more cars you have in the driveway, the less snow you have to clear off of it. clown

Now they are talking possibly up to 14" of snow. affraid Unfortunately, I'll be in Chicago til Friday for school. I showed the wife tonight how to run the snowblower. lol!

18" for us, 5 hours of snow blowing and I made a dent. One of my trees in my yard came down and landed in the street..... this storm blows!
