    Who would have immagined thre would be snow on April 27? I took my blazer out of storage a few weeks ago thinking I was in the clear. Man, It's snowing!! I passed a salt truck on my way back home tonight too! Man, I didn't store my truck all winter to drive it in salt. Oh well, at least I got it undercoated a few weeks ago. I guess I have to expect that kind of thing in MN. I was nice to see how my truck handled in the ice/ snow. BAD in 2wd and ok in 4x4. Oh well, it will be nice out soon, I hope.

    I'm in western South Dakota, we've been getting alot of rain the last few days. I hit the carwash on the way home when it's snowing if they're salting the roads. Gotta wash that salt off !!!

    yep, had a guy in a furd plow into the back of my GF 2000
    s-10 blazer last week. i almost drug him out of it in front of his kid he was taking to school. (GF shut me down) people are just idiot's like you say. our blazer look's like a demolition derby car, people raming there door's, cart's and whatever else into it. then when she was at work somone ran into the front of it and totaled out the grill.. suck's..
    that's why i got my pickup's high...

    Yup, we got it here too, in Calgary, My drive to work Friday morning consisted of driving around one jack knifed truck and a roll over.

    This stuff has to end soon. We're suppose to go for our first camping/wheeling trip in 3 weeks.!!!

    Not as bad here in Edmonton, but I'll take the blame for the recent snow. I put the insurance back onto my '72 on the weekend, looking forward to nice days with the top down and wouldn't you know it, snow within hours. Sorry

    It was low 90's here in College Station when I got off work yesterday about 7pm. By the way what is snow? and what do y'all use the salt for? j/k In a month we'll be asking for winter again down here. Y'all should see the roads down here went it gets icy, cars are EVERYWHERE!!
