My Pathfinder stuck in the field - crappy cell phone pic but the 'depressing' factor really shines here.

There are photos that I do not have, like ones where my car actually got stuck because I just absolutely needed to pull over to pee... over the sierra moutains going back to reno from Travis AFB... that was not fun, until the cocky CHP guy got stuck right behind me

After a nice drive home from the woman's. This was last year, so far this year winter has been 40+ degrees and I've been wearing shorts most days

Holy hell. Another big storm tomorrow, and this one is missing us, too. You guys in NJ and DC have gotten at least 10X the snow we've gotten, it's unheard of.

^is this in Chi or W-town? I had heard that the Tug Hill doesn't have much snow, either.

This is in the Chi. Tug Hill had a few storms but nothing major. Wtown has like no snow... we have had maybe 2 8" storms the whole season. Now that I'm bringing my Miata out to NY there will probably be non-stop snow until May.

+1, BIG TIME. We are due precip, of some type. If it doesn't snow huge within the next month, it will be a ridiculously rainy spring.

From where I am, this has been a really strange pattern.

Its a pleasant 50 degrees with a light breeze.
But do not envy me, for in a month it will ridiculously hot and humid. This is the nicest weather we get all year imo

My daily driver, in hibernation. SAAB 9-5 wagon, turbo failed. Have it pulled apart and waiting on the turbo to come back (had much damage)...

So all that snow on top of your car dosen't mess up the soft top?

Mine had the hardtop fitted and it was supposed to be in the garage, or at least have it's cover on it...

My Miata looked quite similar to Scott's. Once the snow stopped, cleaned it off, no issues with the top at all.
